Kentucky Forestry Economic Impact Report

Kentucky Forest Sector Economic Contribution 

Forests cover nearly half the state of Kentucky and are the foundation of a forest sector that is a major economic force in the Commonwealth. This webpage contains the latest Kentucky forest sector economic contribution estimates, prior estimates, links to data sources and methods, as well as additional information related to the economic importance of Kentucky’s forest resources.    

The 2018 estimates for the economic contribution of Kentucky’s forest sector include: 
  •  $8.5 billion in direct economic contribution  
  • $13.5 billion in total economic contributions 
  •  26,000+ jobs in the forest sector and an estimated  
  •  60,000+ jobs overall 

The Kentucky Forest Sector is divided into six sub-sectors: Logging, Primary Wood Manufacturing, Pulp and Paper, Secondary Wood Manufacturing, Paper Converters Wood Residue Each of these sub-sectors is comprised of one or more forest industries except for the Pulp and Paper sub-sector which consists of only paper mills in Kentucky. For more information about the forest industries included in each sub-sector click here. 


KFIA has been in close contact with the Governor's Office and has received a copy of the Executive Order .  The order will close all businesses that are not life-sustaining or deemed essential.  The order states under Section A that all businesses operating in the Federal Critical Infrastructure Sectors are exempt from closure and can remain open which includes the wood products industry.  The Food and Agriculture section of the report specifically states that "Workers who support the manufacture and distribution of forest products, including but not limited to timber, paper, and other wood products are exempt".  We interpret this to mean that all wood manufacturing industries can remain open as long as they are following social distance guidelines.     

We are in the process of confirming all interpretations directly with the Governor's office and will keep members updated on any changes.  Please contact the KFIA office if you have any questions or concerns and we will keep all membership regularly updated as we all get through these tough times.

KFIA is working closely with issues related to the current outbreak of the coronavirus.  We are working to insure that the industry is following all recommendations to prevent the spread of the virus and making sure that the wood products industry is recognized as an essential industry to get us through these tough times.   

During these changing times we hope all of our many members and families supported by our industry are following precautions and staying healthy.  We wanted to update you on current activities related to the Coronavirus COVID-19 in Kentucky and legislation at the national level.  The Kentucky Forest Industries Association office is open and continuing to work hard to represent the wood industry in Frankfort. 

National Homeland Security Guidelines lists the wood products industry as essential to produce many products that are needed during this crisis.  The other important part of the issue is to make sure that all of   our members that continue to operate  and be sure to follow “social distancing” guidelines and other practices to   every extent possible to prevent the spread of the virus at the workplace.

Congressional Action Memo sent to membership    

Federal Tax Relief for Individuals and Business - The U.S. Treasury Department issued guidance saying that taxpayers can delay paying some federal income taxes for 90 days before interest and penalties kick in, but they must still file a return by April 15.  Taxpayers who want more time to file their returns can do so by filing a form with the IRS requesting an automatic six-month extension.  Individuals can delay payments of up to $1 million in taxes and corporations can get payments of up to $10 million deferred until July 15 without interest and penalties.  You should review the official notice from Treasury and consult your tax professional before making any final decisions regarding this new guidance.   

State Resources for Business and Individuals - Kentucky is implementing assistance programs for individuals and business, including disaster loan program funding provided by the U.S. Small Business Administration.  The Council of State Governments has made available state level information about business assistance programs.  Their site also provides information about the state programs and disease prevention.  You may view their database here.
