The Indiana Forest Products Community is a collaborative effort between key institutions in industry, associations, IN government, and academia serving as web portal with comprehensive information about the forest products industry in Indiana. It facilitates communication between member companies and associations and contains knowledgebase of various aspects of wood and wood products (e.g. types of trees, types of wood products, manufacturing techniques, etc.) It also facilitates buying and selling of wood products between the members.

The Indiana Forest Products Price Report and Trend Analysis (pdf, 629 KB) is provided by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources (IDNR), Division of Forestry. This report lists prices paid for delivered logs, not trees. The forest products price report will give you an idea of the wide variation in prices by species and log quality. For timber marketing experts a list of Professional Foresters is available here, or you can contact your IDNR District Forester.
