Get the most recent regional timber prices for Q1 2018.
We’ve updated the way we present timber prices to better reflect the differences in local and regional timber prices. First by state and then by local regions within that state. If local prices aren’t presented, assume that state’s timber prices are more homogeneous.
Timber prices generally reflect the market (ie. mills) that exists in a certain region along with the demand that currently exists in that region (ie. is there a surplus or deficit of wood). Depending on the market that exists, there can be a greater or lesser demand for wood in those markets.
Typically, the bigger the market, the better the timber prices. That’s why if you compare timber prices state by state, you might be disappointed in seeing the timber prices in a smaller market when compared to a larger market.
However, it’s important to understand what market you’re in, where your market is going, and what you need to do today to be successful in your market. Comparing your market to another and making decisions based on information outside of your own market could be a recipe for disaster.
If you’re looking for more information on how to be successful in your market, reach out to us today and let us know how we can help you manage your timber.
