Industry Forecast - Lumber Pricing & Market Predictions
Mills have taken a very aggressive and defensive stance until a Softwood Lumber Trade Agreement decision is made on April 24th. Prices continue to rise at alarming rates and our industry has now set ourselves up for what will be a long and difficult road ahead. Not only will the market remain unpredictable for the next ten days leading up to a decision, but it will take several weeks following the trade deal for the market to readjust and simple supply and demand to become the main factors in determining market price.
