Executive Summary

The Forest Landowners Association (“FLA”) retained FTI Consulting, Inc. to assess how a $1 trillion infrastructure bill could affect the wood products value chain (“WPVC”). For this analysis, we defined the WPVC as consisting of four subsectors defined by the North American Industrial Classification System (“NAICS”):1 (1) forestry and logging (NAICS 113), (2) wood product manufacturers (NAICS 321), (3) paper product manufacturers (NAICS 322), and (4) printing activities (NAICS 323). Wood products support many types of infrastructure including, but not limited to, paper for design and engineering, furniture for site operations and back office support, pallets for transport, boxes for delivery of materials, lumber for framing, and wood forms for road and bridge construction.
