National Forest Products Week, 2006

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                During National Forest Products Week, we take time to 
                appreciate the natural splendor of our country's 
                forests and acknowledge the importance of these 
                woodlands to our economic and environmental vitality. 
                It is also an opportunity to renew our commitment to 
                conserving our natural resources and to using them 
                responsibly.

                Our forests are important to our economic well-being, 
                supplying products that drive our economy and create 
                jobs and opportunities.

                America's forests are also an important part of our 
                Nation's natural beauty, and we must continue to 
                conserve and use these resources in a manner that 
                preserves them for future generations. My 
                Administration is committed to protecting our forests 
                and woodlands against fire damage. Through the Healthy 
                Forests Initiative, we have reduced the danger of fires 
                by removing hazardous fuels from millions of acres of 
                Federal land, making communities safer from 
                catastrophic fire and improving wildlife habitat.

                Recognizing the ``importance and heritage of our vast 
                forest resources which are inseparably tied to our 
                present and our future,'' the Congress, by Public Law 
                86-753 (36 U.S.C. 123), as amended, has designated the 
                week beginning on the third Sunday in October of each 
                year as ``National Forest Products Week'' and has 
                requested the President to issue a proclamation in 
                observance of this week.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the 
                United States of America, do hereby proclaim October 15 
                through October 21, 2006, as National Forest Products 
                Week. I call upon all Americans to observe this week 
                with appropriate ceremonies and activities.
