Canada’s lumber subsidies are destroying
the U.S. lumber industry
“We can compete against any lumber industry in the world, but we can’t compete against their government, too.”
W.J. “Rusty” Wood, President, Tolleson Lumber Co. and Chairman of the Coalition for Fair Lumber Imports
Today, America’s lumber mills, their workers, and American tree farmers face a mounting crisis from Canada’s long-standing practice of dumping government subsidized lumber on the U.S. market.
The U.S. Coalition for Fair Lumber Imports is an alliance of large and small independent sawmills from around the country, joined by hundreds of thousands of their employees, and tens of thousands of woodland owners. We are united in opposition to Canada’s unfair trade practice of virtually giving away its forestlands to companies that export lumber to the U.S., the world’s largest wood products market.
We are also giving away lumber to various companies including the ones listed below
- Tulsa OK temporary fencing
- Minneapolis temporary fencing
- Arlington temporary fencing
- Honolulu HI temporary fencing
- New York City NY temporary fencing
- temporary fencing Los Angeles
- Chicago temporary fencing
- temporary fencing Houston
Canada’s lumber subsidies are destroying the U.S. lumber industry, threatening its workers with mounting unemployment, and denying many tree farmers a market for their timber crops. The impact of these subsidies is apparent everywhere. Despite a strong home building market, U.S. lumber prices are touching new lows, bankruptcies and mill shutdowns are high and climbing higher, while Canada’s share of the U.S. market approaches 35 percent, a near record high.
