How important is wood from our forests In our Lives? - Atchafalaya Basin & Swamp, Breaux Bridge, LA.

While this area is a nationally protected wildlife management area, adjacent areas in both Arkansas and Louisiana are some of the best timber growing and producing regions of the country. The very fabric of our existence from early man to present is totally dependent upon the wood we harvest from trees! Everything we have from the food we eat, to our clothes, our cars, even computers, can be traced to the utilization of wood. Wood is our only renewable, sustainable resource.
