Industry Forecast - Lumber Pricing & Market Predictions
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.
