    Where Would We Be Without Wood? (video)
    This annual luncheon was the first in a series highlighting the industry sectors that drive the region’s economy. EDC Warren County President Edward Bartholomew said starting with the forest products industry was the obvious choice.

    “Where would we be without wood?” Bartholomew said. “From foresters, timber harvesters and sawmills to virtually every type of paper product manufacturer and the equipment manufacturers, fabrication shops and industrial contractors who help keep the facilities running, no industry has made a more widespread or enduring economic contribution to our region than the forest products industry.”
