Forest Products

The Redwood Coast region's Forest Products is a mature, concentrated mix of related industries that ultimately tie to the region's rich timber supply. It is comprised of timber related and logging enterprises, wood products and manufacturing, wholesalers and specialized transportation. The region is heavily concentrated in Forest Products at a rate that is more than ten and half times the California average. Humboldt and Siskiyou are the two highest timber producing counties in the state and the region produced amongst half of the state's total timber harvest in 2010. Forest Products industries comprise some of the region's highest-paying firms and command a steady supply of local job applicants.

Redwood remains the premier and specialty product for the region. California buys over 80% of the redwood produced in the region, making California's economy a significant driving force in the industry.
