The Real American Hardwood Promotion is an initiative being undertaken by the state, regional and national hardwood associations to promote the use of hardwoods across all industry segments. The Associations have combined resources to fund research to learn how hardwoods can be better marketed to the consumer and discover how decisions are made when purchasing a wide range of hardwood products.

This video explains the research results and sets the path for growing hardwood markets to increase demand for our members from domestic markets throughout the United States.
