The lumber industry by its very nature is erratic, and subsequently supply, demand and pricing all become increasingly difficult to control or predict. It was with this in mind that Sherwood Lumber introduced Guaranteed Forward Pricing in 2011, a resource that has become invaluable for our customers. Since its introduction, the number of customers taking advantage of this risk-averting service has doubled each year, demonstrating the desire for stability in an often uncertain market.
