  • ABSTRACT Non-timber forest products in the southeastern United States are rich and varied and contribute millions of dollars to the economies of timber producing states. They include medicinals, specialty wood products, floral greens, and edibles. However, little is known about the safety and health outcomes of those workers that harvest non-timber forest products. We stress the need for research to assess the burden of injury and fatalities in this work group.
