(Fredericktown) There are many in southeast Missouri who make their living working in the timber industry or the forest product industry and you will be happy to know there is a statewide organization that has the backs of those businesses and those working in that particular industry.
That organization is the Missouri Forest Products Association and a Madison County man is actually the president of that groups’ Board of Directors.
We asked Paul Gaines if they see any current legislation that would possibly help or even hinder the forest industry, be it federal or state legislation.
Gaines says membership is pretty big in the Missouri Forest Products Association but new members are always welcome to join.
