If we consider that the lumber stocks are effectively getting shorted right now then the picture isn't as grim as it may appear on paper as they'll have to cover eventually. It's discouraging for...read more

Weather shaping up pretty good for the summer.

Dog mountain doesn't seem to be much of a factor right now.  The rain of a couple weeks back dampened the forest fire index at least temporarily and a somewhat significant rain is expected during the...read more

If there's something to be affected, it's positive! Look at it simply, the wood will already be dry, so less time drying it! ;-) Just kiddin' I think this temporary low is only because the rest of...read more
