What we do

From foresters and loggers to sawmill and veneer producers to paper mills, pallet producers, cabinet manufacturers and other secondary processors, Pennsylvania is home to a vast and diverse forest products industry.

The Pennsylvania Forest Products Association is the leading trade association for our industry here in the Keystone State. While we are individual businesses with individual goals, we have come together with a common voice to represent the interest of our industry.

PFPA advocates for the access and harvest of Pennsylvania forests at sustainable levels, based on scientific principles. We defend against excessive taxation and regulation that makes our industry less competitive or negatively impacts the proper management of healthy forests. We also reach out and educate the public on why it is important for Pennsylvania to have sustainable, managed forests and a strong, vibrant forest products industry.
