    Market Overview

    Delivered log prices have fluctuated this quarter, but continue to trend upward. The framing lumber composite price is up $40/MBF from where it was a year ago. Steady logging production has helped build log inventories at most mills. Some mills already have their spring inventory volume and in order to correct this imbalance, mills may have to restrict deliveries by imposing quotas and/or pulling off the market. Log prices are expected to remain steady through the remainder of thrid quarter. Due to seasonality, prices in the fourth quarter typically soften as lumber sales and consumption falls off. Pulp and tonwood prices remain unchanged.
