Wood & Paper
In Central SC, we’re planting the seeds for success. With more than 2.7 million acres of forestland, our roots run deep and our future has never been stronger.
As one of the original thirteen colonies, South Carolina’s forestry industry is one of the oldest in the nation. With almost 400 years of experience, global brands like International Paper, Georgia-Pacific, and West Fraser have turned to our region’s green thumbs to grow their business. Home to more than 80 facilities, the wood and paper industry in Central South Carolina employs more than 5,000, and is the state’s largest manufacturing sector.
