Vermont’s Working Lands Enterprise Board (WLEB) is engaged in a project to provide a systems analysis of the forestry and wood products industry in Vermont. Yellow Wood Associates is working with the Forestry Subcommittee (composed of both WLEB and industry members) to complete this work. This document summarizes the findings of The Forestry and Wood Products Sector Survey. The Forestry and Wood Products Sector Survey is one piece of a year-long project that will engage stakeholders across the forestry and wood products industry in Vermont to better understand the industry and the opportunities for strategic investments to support and grow this important sector of Vermont’s economy.

The survey was developed to gain insight into the production and market relationships that exist as well as gaps and opportunities related to market penetration as perceived by producers, and included questions geared specifically towards businesses providing primarily services (forestry, logging, trucking, and sawmill services) or those primarily producing primary or secondary wood products.
