Rayonier and FRA have collaborated to develop a video that shows the importance of the H-2B visa program to the forest products industry. The video and the information collected by the FRA survey of employers who hire H-2B forestry workers will be used to inform and educate elected officials and decision-makers about the critical role of the H-2B visa program in renewing our nation’s forest lands following a timber harvest or natural disturbance, such as wildfire. The information will be shared with Members of Congress, Departments of Labor and Homeland Security, USDA, Forest Service, White House staff, and our allies working with us on the H-2B visa issue.
