January 12, 2024: Market Slows as Year Starts
Justin Binning and Ken Timmins with American International Forest Products (AIFP) provide a snapshot of the current lumber market. After a robust December, the market has started slow in 2024. Curtailments, weather, and transportation may impact availability early on and the December rush may also delay the spring buy season. 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. They both specialize in high grade lumber for the component manufacturing industry.
