The Forest Society testified in support of House Bill 1005, legislation that would establish the New Hampshire low-grade timber and wood emerging market commission.

The bill aims to address how the contraction of low-grade wood markets has placed stresses on the forest products sector and the private landowners who hold over 70% of the forested areas in New Hampshire. 

We would encourage readers to contact the Committee on Resources, Recreation and Development in support of HB 1005.
