Mississippi Timber

Whether you fly over or drive through Mississippi, you are immediately impressed by the beauty and abundance of their timberlands. With approximately 19.3 million acres of forest land, Mississippi is ranked 3rd in timber-producing acres in the Southeastern US.

Mississippi timber mills produce everything from utility poles, construction mats, dimensional lumber, plywood, newsprint, timbers, beams, pallets, and pellets.

Mississippi has a strong infrastructure of timber resources including privately owned timberland, a well-trained logging community committed to the sustainability of their forests, state-of-the-art mills, and home to some of the world's largest biomass pellet companies.

About Mississippi Department of Agriculture
