Michigan forests have always been important to the quality of life of Michigan citizens. But our demands on forests continue to grow and to change. To maintain our quality of life, the way we manage our forests will also change.
MFPC actively promotes the family-sustaining employment of Michigan's loggers. Each year Michigan's 1,500 logging firms produce around 4 million cords of fiber, providing the necessary resource to manufacture our everyday products. MFPC is a leader in protecting fiber industry jobs, increasing logger safety, and educating loggers on certified sustainable practices.
There are about 20,000 logging businesses across the United States, employing approximately 100,000 people.
