Western Wood Products Association represents lumber manufacturers in the 12 Western states and Alaska. The largest lumber association in the region, WWPA provides service covering over 8 billion board feet of annual Western lumber production.
WWPA provides services to Western mills in three areas: Quality Assurance, Technical Services and Market Services. Member mills have access and can guide Association activities in all three service areas.
