SLB Board Members and Softwood Lumber industry have taken the time to share their thoughts on the assessment increase and reflect on the SLB's impact in the industry.
2018 was the SLB’s most successful year yet. The newly released SLB 2018 Annual Report details our accomplishments in protecting and diversifying markets for softwood lumber.
Almost seven years later, we’re looking back on our work with pride, having launched the mass timber movement and generated almost five billion board feet of incremental demand.”Mark Brinkmeyer
