Paper Keeps Forests as Forests

Industry News

Today is Arbor Day, a holiday that celebrates trees and encourages people to plant them.

Jan Poling, Vice President, General Counsel & Corporate SecretaryOne-third of the U.S. is forested, and there are more trees on U.S. soil today than there were on the first Earth Day celebration nearly 50 years ago.

The U.S. paper industry has played an important role in that growth and continues to help keep forests as forests. Paper production gives landowners a viable reason to plant more trees—even in places where there are none now.
