Native Plant Sale

WCSWA Monthly Meeting-March 28, 7:00 pm Log, Pole, and Pulp Buyers Panel Discussion

Anticipating a timber harvest in the near future? A panel of log, pulp, and pole buyers will share their thoughts on “things you need to know” about marketing the products from your harvest. The speakers were selected for their expertise and experience in log, pole, and pulp markets. For log markets, there is one speaker to cover common softwood markets, and one to cover hardwood log markets. The speakers are Josh Miller of Northwest Hardwoods (hardwood logs), Tyler Robbins of Hampton Lumber Company (conifer logs), Mike Luttrell of Bell Timber (pole timber), and Paul Hadaller of Pacific Fibre (pulpwood). The speakers will cover a wide range of topics concerning the marketing of wood products by small woodland owners: historical patterns and trends in the near and possible future, log, pole, and pulp factors affecting product value, timing of harvest and sale, and the characteristics of timber product sales by small woodland owners (such as size of sale, quality of product, “freshness” of product, and more). And in a nutshell, what other factors should a small woodland owner know that are important in selling logs? Past panels of log and pulp buyers have generated a lively interchange between panel members and the audience, and we expect it will be the same this year! 2023 WCSWA Monthly Programs
