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.
