About Current Log Prices


The Data is Not Available

Most log markets have remained fairly steady over the last few months, with the exception of a few select markets where prices have significantly increased.  Pulp is a hot item currently due to a shortage of wood chips and sawmill residue. Cedar prices have continued to weaken.  Since we are on the cusp of spring break-up there are many unknowns regarding future log prices (length of break-up, mill log and lumber inventories, spring lumber price trends, etc.); however, most log buyers anticipate a modest uptick.
