Did you know Louisiana plants 5 times as many trees as it harvests? On September 8th, employees of the IP Mansfield mill spoke to 16 different groups of 7th grade students from DeSoto Parish public schools to educate students on the importance of Healthy and Abundant Forests, and the importance of young forest plantations for carbon sequestration. Our mill professionals offered their expertise on the many reusable applications of trees and wood within the circular economy. They also brought examples of final products, like veneer, toilet paper, fluff pulp, and diapers, and gave the kids a chance to make their own paper by hand.
