Rogue River, OR (June 24, 2014) – was founded to provide lumber professionals a forum for sharing technical and industry information in the area of lumber drying and kiln processes. In April 2014, the forum passed the 100,000 page view landmark.

Lumber drying professionals are finding answers to their questions and engaging in conversations around topics including stacking practices, planer impact, drying defects, training and kiln maintenance. This gives members a place to ask questions of a technical or general nature, as well as for the forum experts to provide up-to-the-minute information across a range of industry and education issues.

Moisture management in lumber production is of critical importance for sawmills. As they relate to kiln drying and lumber quality, understanding the mill processes from the log yard through the planer mill can be a highly-technical challenge, and the forum at leads the discussion in best practices and problem-solving for kiln personnel and other industry experts. The site also offers a list of upcoming events and job opportunities.

The forum’s expert panel consists of Dr. Mike Milota of Oregon State University, Dr. Phil Mitchell of North Carolina State University, Dr. Stavros Avramidis of University of British Columbia, Pierre Asselin, ing.f, who facilitates discussions in the Canadian French language, and Timothy Duncan, Wagner Meters’ Engineering Manager. These experts provide both breadth and depth to the expertise provided through the forum and represent a solid foundation of technical and practical experience in wood drying, moisture management and lumber production practices.

To tap into this unique resource for lumber mill management and personnel, visit and become part of the discussion.
