West Palm Beach, FL–The American Walnut Manufacturers Association (AWMA) met here recently during the National Hardwood Lumber Association’s annual convention to conduct their semi-annual business meeting with attending members.  

AWMA members discussed current market trends for lumber and logs and agreed that robust markets continue for all things pertaining to Walnut. Competition for logs is strong domestically and internationally and green Walnut lumber is in high demand for all grades and species. The only market softness mentioned was for kiln-dried lumber in lower grades.  

AWMA continues to focus on species advocacy and marketing programs that benefit membership. AWMA will be having a LinkedIn profile in the near future that will combine with their new website that features a product inquiry opportunity that members have found very beneficial.  

AWMA will be looking for new opportunities to educate architects and designers, in particular, on the use and selection of Walnut for interior projects. AWMA’s next business meeting will be in February at the annual Indiana Hardwood Lumbermen’s Association meeting in Indianapolis.
