Description


Plan to join the Wisconsin Society of American Foresters for their state meeting on October 2 and 3 in Stevens Point at the Holiday Inn and Convention Center. “Boards, Cords and Beyond: Managing Your Woods for Maximum Value” is the title and will feature quality speakers covering a variety of topics providing up-to-date information on markets affecting timber products and alternative forest-based products. The second day involves a field tour to two local forest industries; Marth Wood Shavings in Marathon and the WE Energies biomass plant in Rothschild. The second day has a strict limit of 80 participants-please register early! Check this link for the agenda.

We are excited to have two keynote speakers for the day. Dan Meyer, from Hardwood Review will give a hardwood market review in the morning to set the tone. Hardwood Review is a subscription based publication that provides pricing and market information on North American hardwood lumber imports and exports.

Pete Coutu, from Forest 2 Market will lead a market discussion in the afternoon. Forest 2 Market is a global provider of timber pricing, cost benchmarks and in-depth analytics for the raw wood markets. The organization’s website is www.forest2market.com .
