RESEARCH STRATEGY

To provide the list of privately-owned lumberyards that are within 50 miles of Florida's coastline, we first utilized Google Map to identify a list of lumberyards. We then utilized the "Measure Distance" tool to measure the distance between a lumberyard and the coastline by simply right clicking on the company location, scrolling down to "Measure Distance", and then clicking on the coastline; Google Map then automatically provides the distance between the two places (as depicted in this attached screenshot). After confirming that the company is within 50 miles from Florida's coastline, we then looked through each company's website to make sure it is privately-owned and not a part of any corporate national chain.
