Interior Forest Products

Around the nation many locations offer forest products development opportunities but few can offer sustainable, high quality, developed transportation connections, final consumer markets and a system of industry support.  With its substantial timber resources, Fairbanks, Alaska is the place to build and expand on its forest products industry.  All these resources allow for value-added production backed by the necessary expertise and support. Fairbanks is an attractive location for forest industry development and the Fairbanks Economic Development Corporation is here to help!

Resources

White Spruce and Paper Birch are the principle species in the Interior, with lesser amounts of Aspen and Black Spruce.  State and private owned lands combined provide over 5,655 MMBF.  A variety of processes are available for procurement of timber to sustain forest product operations.
