Montanans across Big Sky Country will celebrate the third annual Montana Forest Products Week during the third week in October this year.  Montana's Legislature established this week in 2011 to honour our forest products industry--extending appreciation for:

  • Supplying locally made wood product
  • Stewardship of our private and public forest
  • Providing gainful employment
  • Maintaining access to public and private forests

Events are planned for each day of the week throughout the state to highlight the benefits our forests provide to Montana's citizens.  You will have the opportunity to visit active forest management and restoration projects, tour several sites within the Lolo Complex fire and get a firsthand look at local forest products and processing facilities.

Montana Forest Products Facilities Map

Montana manufacturers produce a wide variety of products from Montana-grown wood. The map below shows the diversity of wood products facilities in the State. By clicking on the pin you can see the facility name, type, location, and what products are sold. Montana's wood products facilities employ over 3,200 people and sold an estimated $580 million worth of products in 2012. Click here to visit the main interactive map page.

This map is courtesy of the University of Montana's Bureau of Business and Economic Research (BBER) and is the result of a periodic census of primary wood processors in the state.  The last census was completed in 2009 and has been updated with closures and openings to the best of their knowledge. More information on the BBER and their forest industry research program can be found at: http://bber.umt.edu/FIR.
