Industry News, Lumber Connection,

Justin Binning and Joe Griffith with American International Forest Products (AIFP) provide a snapshot of the current lumber market. Buyers continue to purchase lumber as needed, but order files appear to be getting farther out as wildfire and hurricane seasons begin. Both guests indicated it looks like the market will likely follow a more traditional pattern into the fall unless there are natural disaster disruptions. Joe also provides perspective on how lumber trading has evolved over his 25-year career. Justin has been with AIFP since 2010 with a focus in Southern Yellow Pine and Joe has been with AIFP since 1996 and manages the lumber sales department. Both specialize in high grade lumber for the component manufacturing industry.
