      Robert Bentley: Primary value of forests is economic and job related

      Alabama forests are an important part of the storm recovery process both in terms of the beauty and recreation they provide, but also for the economic value they have and the jobs that the forest products industry provides to Alabama's overall economy. The members of this task force will work diligently to make sure this industry recovers as quickly as possible.
