Machine Stress Rated Lumber Producers Council

(888) 848-5339


Established in 1987, the MSR Lumber Producers Council (MSRLPC) represents the interests of machine stress rated lumber producers in the manufacturing, marketing, promotion, utilization, and technical aspects of MSR and MEL lumber.

Including all the major MSR lumber producers in North America, the MSRLPC serves an industry that produces more than 1 billion board feet of MSR lumber annually in North America. Emphasizing its higher quality, longer spans, and better lifetime performance, we seek to promote the benefits of using MSR lumber and expand the markets for its use.

In 1994, the MSR Lumber Producers Council (MSRLPC) began tracking the progress of the Machine Stress Rated lumber industry and publishing an annual production survey. Including responses from all the major MSR producers in North America, this annual production survey is a tool for monitoring the progress of the MSR lumber industry in North America and promoting the use of MSR lumber worldwide. The species group designations reported in the survey are Douglas Fir-Larch (DFL), Hem-Fir (HF), Spruce-Pine-Fir (SPF), and Southern Yellow Pine (SYP).

The MSRLPC invites all MSR lumber producers and equipment manufacturers to join as Regular members. Suppliers, customers, and professionals may choose Associate membership. If you’d like to learn more about MSRLPC and its members, please email us at, or call us at 888-848-5339. To become a member, fill out the membership application form and submit to us via email.
