Comprehensive Analysis, Data and Rankings of North American Wood-Using Mills


The need to understand the key forest industry players and their status is paramount for maximizing returns and developing strategic plans for timber-selling and wood-using businesses. In Q3 2018, Forisk published a comprehensive analysis (Study) of North American wood-using mills to address the need by detailing current and historic capacity by firm and sector across North America, along with projected capacity levels by sector and region for the next two years.

  • Softwood sawmills;
