LUMBER: The market printed down this week on pretty much everything that went up last week. We are back to level for the most part. Business is still active and trucking is tough with longer lead times. We are heading into March so let's see where this goes.

LUMBER: The market printed flat this week with the exception of 2x4 studs which bumped up a bit. Business was brisk for February and mill order files are firm. Hopefully we've found some common ground in the market and we ride this out a bit until we get closer to spring when buyers will start ramping up and booking more loads.

LUMBER: Another very active week in the market this week as we saw prices print up another $25-$35 mbf. This is already on top of the last few weeks of increases we saw. With winter weather somewhat on our side, demand has been brisk. If you’re not covered for the rest of this month your chasing a rising market. PANEL: Panel stayed firm but we didn't see the increases as in the dimension market but I would look for this market to bump up as well. Paul Tarca Head of Purchasing Concord Lumber Corporation

LUMBER: So for the last few weeks I had mentioned the market being firm to up, this week it's just up. As unpredictable as the market was last year it looks like we start 2019 with the same unpredictability. The big increases were on the eastern side, 2x4 and 2x6, as western spruce has had a hard time getting across the country due to the weather. With a mild week predicted in the east, we may see more unexpected business to drive this up even further in weeks to come. But I'm not predicting. PANEL: On the panel side things stayed pretty flat but let's wait one more week to see what happens. Paul Tarca Head of Purchasing Concord Lumber Corporation
