Who's helping sawmills, lumbermen & loggers?

Asked July 3, 2019, 2:44 PM EDT

There's so much in the news about how the farmers are being hurt by both the economic/trade restrictions and mother nature, but there is NOTHING about the devastation that our hardwood industries are suffering. Emerald Ash Bore, Oak Wilt, Beech Bark disease.. to name just a few. Who's giving money or tax breaks to the numerous sawmills, lumber companies & loggers? Please, help bring this situation to the national level. Federal subsidies and tax breaks are needed!!! Generation owned sawmills are closing down because of the sanctions between Canada/USA and the elimination of some species of hardwoods. PLEASE HELP!

Charlevoix County Michigan
