The long-term sustainability of Missouri forests is important for the local communities and businesses that depend upon timber for their livelihood, and the conservation benefits that forests provide to all Missourians. Many of the MoFRAC member organizations work extensively in researching and implementing management techniques to ensure that Missouri continues to have healthy and diverse forests and woodlands, and as such, a robust forest products industry.
