"Si quaeris peninsulam amoenam circumspice" is a Latin phrase which translates to mean "If you seek a pleasant peninsula, look about you." Residents and neighbors of the affectionately nicknamed Great Lakes State might recognize that expression as Michigan's state motto. It is hard to imagine a more fitting expression for the state that joined the United States of America in 1837. Spanning 96,716 square miles divided over the lower and upper peninsulas, the state supports a vibrant ecosystem that features 4 million acres of state-managed forest land, resulting in a thriving commercial lumber sales business and raising some intriguing notions about Michigan made wood furniture. |
As it is stated on the Michigan Department of Natural Resources Web site referring to timber sales: "Timber is periodically offered for sale from state-managed forest lands. Sales are conducted for the purposes of harvesting mature and over mature trees, responding to past or predicted insect and disease outbreaks, salvaging fire-damaged trees, enhancing wildlife habitat and improving health of forest trees. All harvests are designed to enhance growth of the residual trees or to promote full and prompt regeneration.".
Not surprisingly, Michigan is a substantial supplier of the raw material-- wood-- that can be shipped abroad. That exported lumber is then used to manufacture a large variety of goods around the world that can then be imported into the state, giving local consumers more options in their favorite stores when they're seeking home goods, furniture, printed materials and so much more.
Of course, there's another means to do business, and to possibly slash the travel time around the globe for the wood products-- at least where furniture is involved-- thanks to Jasen's Fine Furniture in Roseville, Michigan.
