Local affiliates of the Mississippi Forestry Association are active
in most of Mississippi's counties, especially counties where timber is
one of the leading crops. The members of these local organizations
include landowners, businesspeople, forestry consultants, forest
industry representatives, and anyone else interested in forestry.
Each county association plans meetings, industry tours, field days,
and other events suited to the needs of the local members. Special
opportunities for involvement in forestry-related activities also occur
from time to time, such as regional legislative expos, political forums,
teacher training, career days, and educational seminars.
