Justin Binning and Ken Timmins with American International Forest Products (AIFP) provide a snapshot of the current lumber market. After discussing what they are looking forward to at the upcoming BCMC | FS, Justin and Ken agreed strong housing activity is driving a robust lumber market that will likely continue through the fall. Deals are still there for the taking in both SPF and SYP, but costs may edge up through the rest of this cycle. Justin has been with AIFP since 2010 with a focus in Southern Yellow Pine and Ken has been with AIFP since 2017, specializing in Fir species. Both specialize in high grade lumber for the component manufacturing industry.
