March 17, 2021: Lumber Shortfall Easing, Watch for Swift Correction
Justin Binning and Ken Timmins with American International Forest Products (AIFP) provide a snapshot of the current lumber market. Justin thinks we are entering into a buyer’s market and a swift correction on the horizon is possible. Ken says transportation constraints and costs continue to remain high all across the country, and some users are getting creative with species substitution. 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.
