In this episode of Farm Bureau's Voices of Agriculture, host Reggie Hall introduces you to the importance of forestry in South Carolina, which comprises of more than two-thirds of the state's landscape and helps contribute millions of dollars and jobs to the economy.
We talk with leading Forestry experts and Associations about the positive impact forestry has on that and more.
