DescriptionAlthough tourism and retirement-related activities dominate the economy in Florida, the forest products industry is a basic industry in northern Florida. Growth in employment was above the national average during the 1970's, and value added by the forest products industry increased between 1972 and 1977. Florida was one of the majority of Southern States in which the forest products industry improved its competitive position during the 1970's.
