What Bert Has To Say About Wausau Metro Area

Wausau is an agricultural center with diversified industry in forest products, paper, and food processing, and more recently, insurance, financial services and health care. The surrounding area is known for outdoor recreation, including watersports and hiking in summer and skiing and snowmobiling in winter. Some of the area’s industries are clearly in transition as shown by the employment numbers, but we expect this area, which is gaining migrants from Chicago and other larger Wisconsin cities, to gain ground.
