挑战是什么?

Most of our employees live in rural communities across North America where we operate mills, 配送中心和其他办公室. These small towns are often built around a history of forestry and manufacturing, 以及与森林密切相关的户外活动文化.

对许多人来说,乡村生活的吸引力是巨大的. 这些地方通常犯罪率较低, 生活成本较低, 交通更少,社区联系更紧密. Society at large also benefits from thriving rural areas and landscapes because they are often crucial sources of water, 食物, 所有人的能量和娱乐, 不管他们住在哪里.

在一些农村地区, 然而, 经济和社会繁荣的障碍很难克服, particularly in communities that lack access to good job opportunities and are experiencing population declines and other demographic shifts. According to recent reports, the lasting negative effects of the Great Recession have 受影响严重的农村地区. A declining population in these areas is both the cause and effect of limited employment opportunities. 教育, 技术和基础设施往往资金不足, 特别是有色人种社区和其他边缘化社区, and rural communities often experience limited access to critical services such as healthcare and higher education.
