Market Brief

December 6, 2019 – “Kiln-dried markets could not be worse,” said one sawmill contact. A wholesaler agreed that “there is not much business right now,” but forecasted a good Q1. And there were a few positives already to be found. A green mill said orders were flowing in; a component plant had more orders than it could fill in a 40-hour week; and a millwork shop was running 50-60 hours per week due to strong demand. One sawmill said it was putting three dozen containers on the water for delivery to China after the Lunar New Year festival ends.
