October 13, 2021: Don’t Expect a Q4 Pullback
Justin Binning and Ken Timmins with American International Forest Products (AIFP) provide a snapshot of the current lumber market. Both experts agree that the lumber market will continue a relatively orderly move upward through the end of the year as demand stays strong and most buyers keep their inventories smaller, focusing on more just-in-time purchasing. Truck availability in the U.S. South and curtailments in British Columbia will continue to create upward pressure on the 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.
