The Voice of America’s Lumber Community

The U.S. Lumber Coalition is an alliance of large and small softwood lumber producers from around the country, joined by their employees and woodland owners, working to address Canada’s unfair lumber trade practices

About the Industry

The U.S. lumber industry is critical to the prosperity and growth of U.S. manufacturing and local communities nationwide. These workers, their families, timberland owners, downstream industries and communities across the country — from Maine to Montana, to Oregon, to Florida — are the reason we advocate for fair trade policies.
