Spring 2021

The lumber market has raced to record-high territory again after retreating during last year’s fourth quarter.  Finally, the Inland Northwest market has started to respond to crazy lumber values with higher log prices.  The cedar log market is particularly competitive, with record prices being paid in some instances. On the other hand, the mixed-species log market is quite variable, depending on location, consequently, benefiting from the best log price may require a long log-hauling distance.  Lumber sellers and log buyers remain optimistic for a continued strong market this year.
