Education Materials

Goods from the Woods Boxes:
There are more than 5,000 wood and paper products that we use and enjoy each day — everything from baby food and ice cream, to rayon and paint, to toothpaste, cosmetics, medicine and household cleaners. But what makes all of these products special is that they come from a renewable resource — trees.  The NCFA shares Goods from the Woods boxes at various events and they are available upon request.  Each box is loaded with 12 items and includes a description for the contents.

Teachers can request education materials by calling the NCFA at (800) 231-7723 or by e-mailing Amy Juliana at  Please include the address of your school and the quantity.
