Forest2Market’s timber price database contains 20 years worth of transaction-level details from more than $6 billion in timber sales. This transactional data provides a full-spectrum view of market dynamics and includes detailed information supplied by forest products companies, wood dealers, loggers, consultants and landowners.
Forest2Market’s timber price data is unique, as it is the only comprehensive set of data that is collected at the transaction level. Every piece of data collected by Forest2Market goes through a rigorous validation and standardization process before being entered into our unique databases; each transaction, along with its sales attributes or cost components, is reviewed before it is entered. The depth and breadth of this data allows for unparalleled insight into both stumpage and delivered prices.
