METHODOLOGY

Third-Party Independence and Neutrality

Forest2Market is a neutral and independent, third-party reporting service. We do not buy or sell timberland, timber, lumber or wood fiber of any kind, nor do we manage timberland or provide credit wraps.

Compliant with All Regulations for Reporting Prices

Because we report prices and produce benchmarks, Forest2Market is required to adhere to the U.S. Justice Department's anti-trust and "safe harbor" standards and European Union competitive guidance for cost benchmarking.

In order to comply with these standards, a firm must:

  • Be independent
  • Meet a volume threshold
  • Require a minimum number of participants
  • Report benchmarks with a time delay

Forest2Market abides by these standards and has received favorable legal opinions from regional, industry-experienced legal counsel for each of our product offerings.
