Quarterly Log Market Report

4th Quarter 2022 Log Market Report

The 4th Qtr. 2022 Inland NW log market remains remarkably stable with most mills in the region continuing to offer above average delivered log prices.  Inland log prices were buoyed this quarter by the Weyerhaeuser mill worker strike that was recently resolved.  Differing log price trajectories at local mills are mostly attributed to their comfortability with log inventory levels going into winter.  The Random Lengths Framing Lumber Composite Price is currently near $475, around $100 less than one year ago.  By and large, recent economic indicators paint a pessimistic picture for near to medium-term lumber consumption outlook.  Doug-fir/larch and grand fir/hemlock continue to be in relatively high demand while ponderosa pine and whitewoods have recently softened in the Inland log/lumber markets.  Pulp log prices remain strong carrying over the trend from last quarter.
