Our forests may not be one of the first things to come to mind when considering the drivers behind Kentucky’s economy, but they should be.
That’s because we ship more than $6 billion worth of wood products each year. More than 22,000 people work in wood-processing facilities across the state, and their combined payroll in 2004 was about double the sale of tobacco that year.
Forests cover 47 percent of Kentucky’s total 25.67 million acres, but even that impressive amount is down about half of what it was before we became a state.
