UPM Blandin Forestry in the USA is responsible for supplying Blandin papermill with the timber it requires and for sustainable management of the forests owned by UPM in the USA. The forestry unit is based at the mill in the town of Grand Rapids, Minnesota. This makes them a great funding partner for us at IEDC. UPM owns and manages over 188,000 acres of forest land, making it one of the largest private owners in Minnesota. Blandin takes pride in the fact that they monitor and utilize wood from sustainable and legal sources.
