Maintaining healthy forests in Montana is the ultimate goal of the forest products industry. Despite strong efforts to restore our forests to diverse, healthy, and resilient ecosystems, there is still more that needs to be done. It takes a village to create a healthy forest, and having a robust sawmill infrastructure is only the beginning.
In this video, you'll hear from Steve Marks, owner of Marks Lumber, and Gary Ellingson with the Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation (DNRC) as they discuss how forestry infrastructure, including foresters, loggers, truckers, sawmills, and other processing facilities all play a critical role in maintaining forest health.
