SOFEW is an organization that brings together representatives of industry, consulting, academia, and federal and state agencies to discuss current issues in the economics of forestry, timber markets, timberland investments, and forest products trade.
An annual meeting is held in the Spring with presentations on financial aspects of timber management and utilization, timber supply and demand, international trade, forest policy, law and many other current issues involved in the business of forestry. An electronic newsletter is distributed to keep members up-to-date on the activities of others within the organization.
Anyone with an interest in forest economics and southern forestry is invited to join our e-mail list. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact us.
