    Etiketter: Forestry
    Lack of space in Chinese ports is bringing a virtual halt to New Zealand log exports to China. The Forest Owners Association says precautions in China against coronavirus have resulted in almost no offtake of logs in China for processing and exporters understand that the remaining log yard space at most ports near processing centres is quickly disappearing. / Timberbiz

  • Lucrative log markets in China tripled softwood log export volumes from Australia

    Etiketter: Wood
    Timberland owners in Australia are increasingly exploring opportunities for the exportation of logs as an alternative to selling logs in the domestic market. From 2012 to 2016, the export volume was up 300%, and 2017 is likely to set a new record high, according to the Wood Resource Quarterly. Rising log prices in the export market have been the key drivers of the increase in exports. Conversely, prices in the domestic market have stagnated the past few years. / Wood Resources International LLC

    Etiketter: Wood

However, despite the recent upward trend in log production, harvest levels in North America were still 40% higher ten years ago than they were last year. / Wood Resources Quarterly

  • US sawlog prices started falling in the 2Q/14 after a three - year upward trend

    Etiketter: Wood
    US sawlog prices started falling in the 2Q/14 after a three - year upward trend, this due to lower US lumber prices and weaker log export markets in Asia, reports the Wood Resource Quarterly. After a healthy 2013 and early 2014, lumber markets in the US started weakening in the spring with lumber prices falling over ten percent so far this year. The reduced lumber prices together with lower demand for US logs in Asia in the second quarter have put downward pressure on US saw log prices so far this year, according to the Wood Resource Quarterly.

  • Increases in Russian lumber exports

    Etiketter: Wood
    ncreases in Russian lumber exports have not compensated for the decline in log exports that came as the result higher log export tariffs. The Russian log export tax that was implemented in 2007 resulted in a sharp decline of log exportation with the Russian share of globally traded logs falling from 44% in 2006 to 15% in 2013. During the same period, lumber exports have increased but shipments have not compensated for the decline in income from the log exports, according to the Wood Resource Quarterly. / Wood Resources International
