Market Overview

Similar to the rest of 2019, delivered log prices have remained mostly stagnant in 4th quarter. Most mills in the region have relatively full log yards and are banking on seasonal, wet weather to help slow down deliveries. A continued abundance of lumber supplies and a domestic construction sector that never got up to full speed have kept the framing and lumber composite price relatively flat. Ponderosa pine logs and lumber have been on a slow and steady decline since 3rd quarter while white fir/hemlock has been up and down but mostly stable. Cedar has been strong recently due to mill curtailments and worker strikes in British Columbia. Pulp, tonwood and Doug fir/larch are all relatively unchanged from last quarter.
