MONTANA WOOD PRODUCTS

There are over 100 mills in Montana producing countless products including building and industrial materials, interior products, furniture, outdoor and landscape products, energy products and specialty woodcrafts.


MONTANA FORESTS AND TREES

Forests cover about one-fourth of Montana’s land area. The forests west of the Continental Divide include ponderosa and lodgepole pine, Douglas-fir, larch, grand fir, spruce, western hemlock and western red cedar while ponderosa pine dominates the drier east side. Deciduous native species include box elder, paper birch, green ash, balsam poplar, cottonwood, aspen, buckthorn, willow and elm. Tree species in the urban forest vary widely, but city-owned trees are predominantly green ash and Norway maple.


ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP

Strong laws and regulations govern harvesting and forest practices in Montana to protect biodiversity, water quality, fish and wildlife habitat, and to reduce fire hazard across federal, state, industrial, tribal, and family-owned forests.
