One of the most important responsibilities of a trade association is to act as a staunch advocate on our members’ behalf.  That’s why NHLA is a founding member and the largest contributor to the Hardwood Federation. The Federation has been hard at work In Washington representing your views on the tariff issue.


NHLA would like to hear your personal opinion on the potential hardwood tariffs.  Are you for or against and why? Has your business already been affected by just the threat of tariffs? If so, please share your story in the comments. 

 

NHLA has been following the tariff threat very closely over the past few weeks.  And while we recognize and respect that a portion of our members have differing views on this issue, we feel it is our responsibility to ensure our government representatives understand the unintentional consequences that even the threat of tariffs has had on our members’ businesses.

 

Prices have dropped dramatically on certain species with company losses ranging from hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars – and this before tariffs are even implemented. Now that China has announced proposed tariffs on hardwood lumber, the prices have dropped even more.  Even pricing on species not normally sold in China have been negatively impacted.

 

We will continue to work closely with the Hardwood Federation on this issue and will provide you with continuous updates as the tariff discussion moves forward.

  1. Definitely consider that that you stated. Your favourite reason appeared
    to be at the internet the easiest factor to be aware of.
    I say to you, I definitely get irked even as other folks think about concerns that they plainly do
    not realize about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and
    outlined out the entire thing without having side-effects , other people could take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thank you

  2. Together with every little thing that appears to be building throughout this particular area, your opinions are actually somewhat radical. Having said that, I am sorry, but I do not subscribe to your entire plan, all be it refreshing none the less. It would seem to everyone that your comments are generally not entirely justified and in fact you are generally your self not thoroughly certain of your point. In any case I did enjoy reading it.

  3. Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog. Is it tough to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Thank you
