June 16, 2023: Market Moderates Up, Remains Steady
Justin Binning and Ken Timmins with American International Forest Products (AIFP) provide a snapshot of the current lumber market. Both guests agree market activity has increased in recent weeks, which has led to moderate cost increases. Small curtailments and wildfires have had minimal impact on supply, demand looks like it will stay measured for the near term, leading to a steady market. 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.
