Timber Marketing & Log Exports

Since 1886, Merrill & Ring has been an active and steady participant in the trade of logs, lumber & wood chips within the Pacific Northwest and around the Pacific Rim.

Today we are focused on purchasing and operating standing timber, and buying logs for delivery to our export facilities. We have operations throughout Washington, Oregon, British Columbia, and New Zealand.

Timber Marketing

Merrill & Ring is active in purchasing, harvesting, merchandising and marketing standing timber from well managed lands around the Pacific Northwest, British Columbia and New Zealand.

Our network of relationships with quality contractors and processing facilities throughout these regions allow us to allocate the right product to the right customer, bringing the highest dollar return back to the landowner.

Log Exports

Merrill & Ring exports multiple species of softwood logs to China, Korea and Japan from several ports in the Pacific Northwest and British Columbia. We purchase logs delivered in raft form or by truck delivery to our port facilities and manage the logistics, shipping and sales to our customers in Asia.
