LUMBER MARKET – May, 2020

  • Upward pressure on lumber prices due to reduced mill supply and better-than-expected demand
  • Surge in demand at box stores from DIYers trapped at home – especially treated lumber
  • Mill prices of SYP, Western SPF and green Doug Fir up sharply as loads hard to find
  • Lumber traders fairly optimistic about sales into June, but worried about Q3 and beyond
  • Steep price increases in OSB and plywood, with shipments from mills running late
