Rooted in Growth


We are the North American Wholesale Lumber Association. Our members are dedicated to growing and nurturing every aspect of the lumber industry, from the careful stewardship of forest resources to the harvesting and distribution of lumber products, to championing wood’s role in a greener economy and a healthier planet.


Since our founding in 1893, NAWLA has been at the very heart of the industry — longer than any other lumber organization in America. We represent the best interests of wholesalers, manufacturers, and service provider companies from the planting of seedlings to the selling of building materials and wood in all of its many forms.


For over 100 years, we have been a uniting bond — from one end of the supply chain to the other. Helping the industry grow by helping our members grow. That is why, our members consider us... North American Wholesale Lumber Association.
