Welcome to the

Southern Forest Products Association

The Southern Forest Products Association has represented and promoted Southern Pine products and services around the globe since 1915. Our mission is to advance the Southern Pine lumber industry, promote the use of member products in domestic and international markets, and facilitate the exchange of information and ideas.

About Us

We're stronger together.
