For the forest products industry, The Forest Partnership will offer a steady supply of certified and/or local material and a marketing story that accurately captures the people and places responsible for producing that certified material. This supply of raw material will be delivered in whatever physical form is desired (e.g. log, lumber, paper) and partnerships with other supply chain participants will be developed to facilitate order fulfillment. For example, if a furniture maker is the customer, The Forest Partnership will work with landowners, loggers, sawmill, and (as necessary) lumber brokers. If, on the other hand, a biomass processor (electric generation or pellet production) is the customer, The Forest Partnership will only be need to work with landowners and loggers to provide the material needed (logs) to the customer. It will be our goal to focus on areas in which we have the most expertise and to strategically partner with other supply chain participants in areas where they have existing strength.
