U.S. lumber and panel market reports

June 30, 2017

U.S.: Lumber and panel market report ---- Week 26  2017
Random Lengths Lumber Market Report
Trading in framing lumber picked up at midweek. This included Southern Pine, although downward pressure — this week amid month- and quarter-end discounting — was unabated. Elsewhere, prices advanced at least modestly. Recent solid gains pushed the Green Douglas Fir Composite Price to its highest level since 2004. Early measured trading in Canadian S-P-F perked up, and mills finished the week with strengthened order files and higher quotes. The anti-dumping duty determination had little to no impact on the market.

Random Lengths Panel Market Report
News of a dryer fire at a Fir veneer plant energized softwood plywood trading, setting the tone for modest gains in overall structural panel markets. OSB sales remained mixed, with northern and western markets faring better than the rain-soaked South. The lethargic sales in Southern Pine plywood of recent weeks was jolted as news spread about the veneer plant fire. Wholesalers and distributors stepped in, and some treaters looked to cover needs through July. An already steady trading pace in western Fir plywood surged in response to the veneer plant fire.
