uh... You don't want to know what they are paying for Red Cedar out here, strong competition between BC and WA mills... Not much domestic cedar available, and the BC stuff is getting political pressure... But as pertains to original post, prices are still lower then they should be, and not the highest I've ever seen either.
Loggers aren't making any more. There making less. The cost of fuel is up and less truck drivers also make production harder.
I'm a Forester and untill a few months ago the price on the stump for southern pine for me was up about 10% , what I received from Tim we buyers. The last sale I'd say it was up 15%-20% over pre Corona prices. The kills are making all the money, screwing us all including the customers.
