In the United States (US), Forisk Consulting LLC, a leader in the North American forest industry and timber market research, has acquired the North American Wood Fiber Review (NAWFR) from Wood Resources International LLC of Bothell, Washington (WA). Tracking wood fiber markets in all major regions of the United States and Canada, it will be published by Forisk as the Forisk Wood Fiber Review beginning in Q1 2020.
Based in Athens. Georgia (GA), Forisk provides management consulting and educational services to senior management and investors in the forest industry, wood bioenergy and timberland investing sectors.
Adding the Review and 35 years of price data to our research portfolio strengthens our ability to serve the forest industry in the United States and Canada, as well as international firms with North American assets. Also, current subscribers can remain confident in the trusted price reporting, as we are thrilled to announce that Tim Gammell, the current Executive Editor of the Wood Fiber Review, will join our team, said Dr Brooks Mendell, President, and CEO of Forisk Consulting.
The Wood Fiber Review is the only publication that covers both the pulpwood and biomass markets in North America. The market report includes prices and market commentary for a dozen regions and “an essential source” for anyone that needs to track pulpwood, woodchips, and biomass prices in the largest and most dynamic wood fiber market in the world.
This transition builds on our long-standing working relationship with Forisk, and provides further opportunities to cooperate on forest industry research and analysis in North America and globally. We are excited about this match and look forward to our continued work together, said Håkan Ekström, President and CEO of Wood Resources International.
