Higher prices, steady demand and ongoing labor issues highlighted activity in the lumber market last week. Restricted offerings from the mills enabled prices to increase on many different items that were sold. Persistent takeaway for clients and distributors kept demand constant and buyers busy trying to maintain a steady flow of material through the pipeline. A shortage of labor on all fronts, from production to getting materials to market, were an ongoing struggle for all concerns, limiting how much can get accomplished at any given time.
