May 5, 2022: Market Robust, Expect Choppiness Ahead

Industry News, Lumber Connection,

Justin Binning and Ken Timmins with American International Forest Products (AIFP) provide a snapshot of the current lumber market. The market remains robust as the construction industry enters its peak months. Transportation issues appear to have shifted from the West to the Midwest and South, and swings up and down have been “sneaky” in their movement, so expect choppiness ahead. 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.
