Hutchinson Resolution Recognizes Forest/Paper Products Industry in PA

Recognizing that timber products and associated industries employ 60,000 Pennsylvanians and pump $19 billion into the state economy annually, the Senate adopted Senator Scott Hutchinson’s Resolution on Tuesday recognizing April 14, 2015 as “Forest and Paper Products Day” in Pennsylvania.

“As a member of the Pennsylvania Hardwoods Development Council, I have great respect and appreciation for the men and women whose efforts make the wood and paper products industry such a vibrant part of our state’s economy. The forest products industry is made up of 2,100 separate businesses, with a presence in every county of the Commonwealth,” said Senator Hutchinson. “Forest and Paper Products Day is a way to remind the citizens of the Commonwealth of the unique contributions that the forest products industry has made to the history, texture, and quality of life of Pennsylvania.”
