Potential for Expansion of the Special Forest Products Industry in the Northern Rockies
Abstract:The special forest products industry has the potential of making substantial contributions to the troubled forest-based economies of the Northern Rockies. Comprised of floral greens, Christmas ornamentals, wild edible mushrooms, other edibles and medicinals, and Pacific yew segments, the industry has the potential to provide both full-time and part-time employment on a nearly year-round basis. The region's natural resource base and available labor supply seem well-suited to developing special forest products firms. The existing transportation system and business environment is also well suited to expansion of this industry. West. J. Appl. For. 10(4):138-143.
