A Healthy U.S. Hardwoods Industry
Supports American Jobs

Much is being said about creating “green jobs,” especially in this challenging economy. People need to recognize
that a job working with hardwoods is a “green job.” American Hardwoods are among the most environmentally sound
building materials around – carbon-storing , renewable and sustainable. The North American Hardwoods industry
helps support millions of families here in the United States.

Our industry, our communities and our families are all interconnected by this amazing and plentiful resource.
Those of us who work to bring hardwoods and hardwood products to market contribute as much to helping
improve our environment as people who build wind turbines.
