Abstract

Seventy per cent of all economic activity in Humboldt County now originates, directly or indirectly, in forest industries. These industries provide jobs for 8,726 people-almost twice as many jobs as the wholesale and retail trades; two and a half times as many jobs as business, personal, and professional services; and over four times as many jobs as agriculture.
