The Southeastern Wood Producers Association (SWPA) is an association whose sole purpose is to represent and support professional timber harvesting businesses. Since 1990 SWPA has been the leading voice for logging companies in Georgia and Florida. The SWPA board of directors have dedicated themselves to an important mission. The mission is to protect the interests and stability of reputable harvesting-transport companies and to be a player in supporting proactive positions on issues that affect our industry.

Establish a positive public image of wood producers
Provide quality continuing education workshops
Provide legislative liason services for our members
Encourage responsible environmentalism
Report news and economic data
Monitor workers compensation & other
"cost of doing business" issues

Our "Mission Success" DEPENDS on our members,
Membership isn't something you have...it is something you DO.

As we continue to work on major goals, we are constantly assisting wood producers in a number of ways. We are as close as your telephone and have already proven that our service more than off-sets the cost of dues. We pledge to diligently search for solutions to your problems with professionalism and dignity, and it is in this spirit that we urge wood producers to "get involved" by standing up and being counted as a part of this organization.

ASSOCIATION NEWS ...(6/12/2014)

Last year the SWPA was instrumental in connecting the Georgia Department of Transportation to emerging technology that should result in improved bridge inspection procedures, safer bridges and better use of existing bridge routes to decrease the number of miles loaded log trailers need to travel to get to the mill…take a look at what the Soy Transportation Coalition had to say about this technology based load testing… (video link)
