Mill Tour — 2013 Small Log Conference

Our mill tour sells out fast. That’s because we pack an awful lot of value into one day — insight, networking, and knowledge-sharing with 50+ forest product professionals while touring mills at the top of their competitive game. Eighteen (18) Chinese and South Korean log and lumber buyers will also join us for the tour, giving you an opportunity to spend an entire day with these serious buyers.
