Spring 2015

In spite of generally falling lumber prices since the beginning of the year, the log market has trended upward at some local mills due to low log inventories. The early start to spring break-up conditions, and the associated county road log-hauling restrictions, has created these log shortages. It is difficult to predict long-term log value trends, but most purchasers predict a softening of prices as the year progresses. This scenario is highly likely if lumber prices continue to wane and log inventories recover to the mills’ comfort levels.
