We manage the Vermont Forest Products Program to create and retain quality jobs and open additional markets for locally produced wood products.
Our collaboration with the Vermont Council on Rural Development to implement the Vermont Climate Economy Initiative will boost economic development, create jobs, and attract youth and creative entrepreneurs to the state.
