To Our FORECON Clients/Friends

No need to tell you we are living in some surreal times right now. The affects of the COVID-19 virus have had impacts on all of us in a variety of ways.  Many are homebound, everyone is (or should be) practicing “social distancing”, and we are being informed 24/7 with updates on the infection rate, where the “hotspots” are, and the need for personal protection equipment for our fantastic doctors, nurses, and health care workers who in many cases are putting their personal well-being aside for the good of us all.

China Agrees to Purchase Additional Hardwoods in Phase 1 Trade Agreement

Good news just came to the forefront; “Phase 1” of the trade deal with China was recently signed, and the Fact Sheet put out by the White House SPECIFICALLY NAMES HARDWOOD LUMBER as one of the key commodities China has agreed to commit to purchasing!
