About WSRI

The WSRI is a joint project of professional loggers, forest landowners, wood consuming mills, educators, and manufacturers that facilitates and funds research to promote and improve efficiency in the wood supply system.


  • identifies and documents the structure and performance of the current wood supply system and identifies opportunities for improvement;
  • investigates ways to operate more efficiently and cost-effectively;
  • communicates research findings directly to WSRI members;
  • publishes key findings to benefit the entire forest products industry.

WSRI brings together all parts of the wood supply chain to address wood supply issues through research, since credible research is needed to identify the primary factors that could improve the efficiency, stability, and business successes of the total wood supply system.
