About Forest2Market

Empowering participants in the global forest, wood products, paper products, biochemical and bioenergy industries

Our Mission

Founded in January 2000

Forest2Market was founded in January 2000 to empower participants in the global forest, wood products, paper products, biochemical and bioenergy industries to make exponentially better decisions through the strategic application of industry expertise and unique datasets.

Three qualities distinguish Forest2Market from its competition. Forest2Market:

  • Is a neutral or 3rd party identity amidst many advocates
  • Has deep industry experience and supply chain expertise
  • Manages unique raw material and end product price databases

 

An Exponentially Better Business Model

Forest2Market believes the only way to achieve a true measure and understanding of the market is to collect transactional data.

The foundation of all Forest2Market products and services is our unique, current and proprietary database of delivered wood raw material transactions and the underlying extensive data collection infrastructure that enables us to collect millions of market transactions every year.

 

History

In 2000, Forest2Market was started by Peter J. Stewart to bring transparency to the wood and fiber supply chain.

The forest and wood products industries, $65 billion in size, face many difficult market, environmental, logistical, inventory and management issues as they navigate their long supply chain. As a neutral party, Forest2Market databases and market profile analytics are invaluable tools for these industries when they are dealing with:

  • Pervasive supply anxiety
  • Growing environmental pressures
  • Substantial fragmentation of the resource base
  • History of antagonisms and suspicions among industry participants
  • History of anti-trust actions against major forest products companies

In the 1990s, Stewart often found himself making multi-million dollar decisions without the support of solid data. Frustrated with the lack of transparent, neutral and accurate market price information, Stewart started Forest2Market in 2000. Based on a business model of collecting transaction data (timber sales contracts, scale tickets, orders and invoices), Forest2Market aggregates the data collected, reports market prices and provides cost and performance benchmarks, supply chain analytics and expertise and strategic consulting.

 

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.
