Market Overview

Delivered log prices have remained mostly stagnant in the 2nd quarter and lumber demand has been slow to pick-up. Some mills in the region which did not carry high inventories into spring breakup have raised log prices slightly. Weather delays in the construction sector and an abundance of lumber supplies have kept the framing lumber composite relatively flat. Some mills are just starting to accept long deliveries and presently, the overall sentiment of the market is sluggish. However, log prices remain strong historically and there is optimism that there may be an increase in prices in 3rd quarter. Pulp, tonwood and ponderosa pine prices are relatively unchanged from last quarter.
