Forestry economic impact: improved in 2013, looks better for 2014 says UK
Researchers at the University of Kentucky are currently conducting thorough research and analysis to predict future trends in the forestry industry in Kentucky. The state is currently growing twice as many trees as it cuts down, and it is leading the way towards a sustainable model of forestry, supporting the economic growth of the US without destroying the forest. The wood industry is an integral part of Kentucky’s economy. This research will set a precedent for how the state is to conduct business in the future with regard to economic and environmental sustainability of this growing sector.
