Sherry Enzler: Expand certification in the timber industry
Minnesota is known as the Land of 10,000 Lakes, but our woodlands dwarf our lakes. We have 16.7 million acres of forests — occupying a third of the state’s land mass. And we are home to a robust forest industry. This industry, which for over a century has been vital to our states economy, provides living wage jobs to thousands of Minnesotans who annually collect over $1.6 billion in wages.
