The forest products industry in Mississippi has four main sectors:
• Timber harvesting,
• Pulp and paper industries,
• Solid wood products industries, and
• Wood furniture manufacturing.
Each of these sectors is important to the state's economy, but how important are they? To address this question, in this article we present estimates of the number of employees, wages and salaries, total output value, and value added for each industry sector and for the total of all four sectors in Mississippi in 1993- the last year for which all the data are available.
