“Andrew will continue doing a great job serving and representing District 10,” said AFA President and CEO Chris Isaacson. “His agricultural background helps him understand issues important to forest landowners.”

The Alabama Forestry Association is one of the largest state forestry associations in the country with membership that includes forest products manufacturers, landowners, loggers, wood dealers, foresters, consultants, and others involved in forestry.

AFA is dedicated to protecting and improving the business, regulatory and legal environment for landowners and forest business owners to ensure the sustainable growth of Alabama’s forests and forest industry.

Forests cover more than two-thirds of the state and provide the raw material for Alabama’s second-largest manufacturing industry. Forestry provides a 27.7 billion dollar total economic output to the state’s economy.
