DescriptionThe Forest Products Price Information portal facilitates search for various information sources reporting price information. It comprises more than 200 different information sources. These include price series data, non-series price data and other price related information from more than 30 countries, mainly European (but also including information from Canada, USA, Australia, Japan, New Zealand and the Russian Federation). For each source, meta-information is provided. Users can search by product category (industrial roundwood, pulp and paper, sawnwood, wood energy, wood based panels), geographic location, market area, and organisation type (Consulting firm, Forest industry organisation, Forest owner organisation, International organisation, Marketplace, National forest agency, National statistical agency, Timber merchant, University department, Wood manufacturer). The portal will be useful to various stakeholders, such as researchers, marketing specialists and decision makers in the forestry and timber industry. The portal is an output of the EFI feasibility study on improving forest products price information. This study was conducted by the EFI Observatory for European Forests (OEF), in collaboration with the UNECE/FAO Forestry and Timber Section.
