United Forest Products
United Forest Products was started in May, 2010, by a group of independent timber growers who had the vision to unite growers, markets and other stakeholders in the industry under one body.

The business model was extended to offer mills and other end-market users the opportunity to become part of the company providing them with an additional platform to market their products and to innovate jointly.
