Timber jobs

Roughly 11 direct jobs are created in the forest sector for every one MMBF harvested. According to the Forest Service Implan Model, an economic multiplier of about 2.5 is used to determine indirect and induced jobs created as the result of each direct job in the forest (swmill) sector.
