Bill's Corner- An Eastern Spruce Perspective

The lumber market saw a steady flow of activity and orders yesterday, but nothing as hectic as it was on Wednesday. A prevailing buying philosophy of replenishing as you sold did keep buyers busy. Confidence that demand and outflow of product would remain constant in the near future kept clients in tuned and participating in the market. Buyers were ever watchful for any buying opportunities that would surface, not hesitating to react to them. The eastern mills did have some wood on the ground but do not have the means to get it to market any quicker than two weeks.


Is 2 weeks delivery considered to be a long time on average? Down the line, closer to builder/retail, the delays seem to be more dramatic @william_giguere @Michael_Haas
