June 30, 2023: Market Heats Up as Summer Settles In
Justin Binning and Ken Timmins with American International Forest Products (AIFP) provide a snapshot of the current lumber market. Western species markets have continued to rise in recent weeks, with chord stock and MSR leading the charge. In SYP, demand is now outstripping supply, which is causing the market to gradually arise as well. In general, mill order files are extending out to four weeks. 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.
