Economic Contributions of the Lake States' Forest Resources, 1982-1995
Abstract:The forest products industry in Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin accounts for about 8% of the region's manufacturing sales, employment, and income. In real terms, sales of forest products are forecasted to grow from $15 billion in 1982 to over $22 billion by 1995. Sales related to wood energy and outdoor recreation in forested areas of the region account for another $2 billion. Adding the multiplier effect, economic activity attributable to these three uses of the forest resource is projected to grow from over $30 billion in 1985 to over $40 billion by 1995. North. J. Appl. For. 7(1):10-13, March 1990.
