Advocacy

State Issues

The Association lobbies to protect our members’ ability to grow, harvest and use forest resources. This includes forestry, environmental, land-use, taxation, transportation and other regulatory issues.

As the political landscape continually evolves, so do the laws regulating our industry. Our Government Relations Committee prioritizes issues of importance to forestry in Florida. Once approved, the Association shares these issues with state legislators.
