Safety Tips - Stop Ticks

The tick population is experiencing a surge this spring - those who work outdoors in the northeast are at a high risk! The CDC recommends doing the following before going outdoors: Know where to expect ticks. Ticks live in moist and humid environments, particularly in or near wooded or grassy areas. You may come into contact with ticks during outdoor activities around your home or when walking through leaf litter or near shrubs. Products containing permethrin kill ticks. Permethrin can be used to treat boots, clothing and camping gear and remain protective through several washings. Use a repellent with DEET on skin. Repellents containing 20% or more DEET (N, N-diethyl-m-toluamide) can protec

Industry Forecast - Lumber Pricing & Market Predictions

The dimensional lumber market has been settling over the last couple of weeks, with pricing maintaining a flat pace. Attributing to the flat market pricing is the current surplus of product, with lead times on most items 2 weeks or sooner. The exception to the product surplus is 2x4 and 2x6 studs, which are still in tight supply but I think we are getting closer to a stabilized market. Panel prices fell slightly this past week. A similar situation has presented itself in this market, with plenty of material available. As for updates concerning the U.S. - Canada Softwood Lumber Trade Agreement, the Canadian government has recently pledged $640m in aid to their softwood lumber sector. Reuters.
