National Forest Products Week: Print Grows Trees

Print Grows Trees is an educational campaign that uses facts to replace the misconceptions that paper kills trees and causes deforestation. The truth is that more than half of all U.S. forestland is privately owned, so by using paper and forest products you are actually providing income to these landowners, which allows them to continue to grow trees.

National Forest Products Week: “Paper is Power” Curriculum

Hammermill recently released a wonderful curriculum for Elementary through High School students called “Paper is Power”. It was created to help students understand the importance of forest products in their every day lives, to help explain the difference between “working forests” and the forests you see in national parks, and to emphasize that you can have both healthy forests and products made from trees if you take care of the lands where they are grown.

National Forest Products Week: The Faces of the Forest

For every paper product you use, there are real people behind it who are dedicated to taking care of our Nation’s forests. They watch over the forests because they know the ecological, recreational, economic and cultural benefits they provide to nature and society. These forests provide habitats to wildlife, drinking water to more than 180 million people, cleaner air – and they are the backbone of the forest products industry.
