About NELMA

Founded in 1933, the Northeastern Lumber Manufacturers Association (NELMA) is the rules writing agency for Eastern White Pine lumber and the grading authority for Eastern Spruce, Balsam Fir, Spruce-Pine-Fir (SPFs) grouping, and other commercially important eastern softwood lumber species. In addition, NELMA is a leading agency for export wood packaging certification and the marketing voice for the wood products industry in the Northeast. The Association continues to develop a variety of non-traditional educational and effective promotional materials that broaden the recognition of softwood lumber products manufactured by its membership.
