FORESTRY'S ECONOMIC
IMPACT ON FLORIDA

The recently completed economic
impact study out of UF/IFAS indicates
that in 2016 Florida's forest industry
contributed more than $25 billion to the
state's economy. It helped provide jobs
for more than 124,000 people, offering
$6.6 billion in income for families across
the Sunshine State.
