ISDA > Hardwoods Hardwoods

Indiana’s reputation for high-quality hardwoods and a Hoosier hospitality business ethic, has made Indiana ranked first (1st) nationally in the production of wood office furniture, wood kitchen cabinets, second (2nd) in manufactured homes, third (3rd) in engineered wood products, forth (4th) in pre-fabricated wood buildings and fifth (5th) in upholstered wood furniture. All of these hardwood products and more allow for an annual economic impact of $16.6 billion for the Hoosier State and more than 35,000 jobs--and an additional 86,000 jobs in economic sectors supporting the industry. And with more than 4.6 million acres of forest land in Indiana (a total acreage larger than Connecticut and Rhode Island combined), this industry is green and sustainable with total forest growth 1.5 times faster than timber harvest.

ISDA continues to increase Indiana's competitiveness in the hardwood industry through trade missions and consumer awareness both nationally and internationally, securing existing hardwoods manufacturing jobs and local demand for the state's high-quality timber.
