SmartLam, the first manufacturer of Cross Laminated Timber products in the United States, is located in Columbia Falls, Montana, near beautiful Glacier National Park. Our 40,000 square foot facility is currently producing over 1 million of board feet of Cross Laminated Timber per month. Due to the rising demand of our product and the new industries we can serve, we are building a new, state of the art facility in Columbia Falls, Montana. This new facility will significantly increase our production and finishing capabilities, and enable us to expand our architectural grade product line.

Oregonʼs forests are vast — and so too are the issues and challenges that impact their continued health and productivity. In 1991, the Oregon Legislature created the Oregon Forest Resources Institute (OFRI) to enhance collaboration among forest scientists, public agencies, community organizations, conservation groups and forest landowners; to provide objective information about responsible forest management; and to encourage environmentally sound forest practices through training and other educational programs.
OFRI is a centralized gateway to shared ideas and collaborative dialogue regarding the delicate balance between the environmental, social and economic values provided by our forests. OFRI is funded by a dedicated harvest tax on producers of forest products.
Visit OFRI and learn more about Oregon forests at booth #405 in the Exhibit Hall.

The TallWood Design Institute is the nation’s only research collaborative that focuses exclusively on the advancement of structural wood products. It conducts the research needed for widespread adoption of mass timber building technology in the U.S.
The Institute is a partnership between Oregon State University and the University of Oregon, bringing together the strengths of OSU’s College of Forestry and College of Engineering, and the University of Oregon School of Architecture and Allied Arts.
The Institute and its affiliated wood science, architecture and engineering faculty have played a key role in developing market-ready mass timber products.
