Florida Wood Using Industry Directory
Each year, forestry in Florida contributes 20.8 billion dollars to the state's income and the forest export economy. This revenue is generated in the form of commercial industry products, state timber revenue and value-added products which are used by people all over the world. Florida has over 29 thousand square miles in forests (1997); including 20,300 square miles in private commercial forest, 3,300 square miles in farm woodlands, and 5,500 square miles in national and state forests. Together this represents nearly 50 percent of the state's land area. Florida 's forest products industry employs more than 100,000 Floridians.
The Florida Forest Service is committed to ensuring the future of the forest products industry throughout our state. For this reason, the Florida Forest Service has developed the Florida Wood Using Industry Directory. This Directory is a compilation of over 330 forest based companies, producers and practitioners. Participation in the Directory is purely voluntary and inclusion does not constitute an endorsement by the Florida Forest Service.
