Florida Economic Impact Reports*

Florida's forests provide a wide range of both economic and ecological benefits. Forestlands enhance economic stability by attracting businesses and tourists, providing hunting lease opportunities, and contributing to residential property value. Not only can trees be used to make over 5,000 consumer items, these forests are essential in providing wildlife habitat, soil protection, clean air, water purification, and wildlife and plant diversity.
