Forest2Market maintains the most complete and the most accurate delivered price database available in the marketplace. The source of the only credible benchmark in the industry, we collect actual delivered raw material costs and cost components from major forest product companies. Currently, 100% of TIMOs, 65% of REITs, and 80% of the largest forest products companies participate in our benchmarks. 

The Forest2Mill Delivered Price Benchmark was introduced in the US South in 2006, followed by the Pacific Northwest in 2007, the Lake States in 2012, and the Northeast in 2013.

We track prices on more than two-thirds of all raw materials crossing a mill gate in the US South and Pacific Northwest and are on track to meet the same level of market penetration in the Lake States and Northeast regions. In total, we collect price data on over 29 million loads of delivered forest products annually.
