I have a dream…that one day softwood framing lumber and panel prices will be free from bondage of one oppressive master.
That all lumber marketeers would have free access to current lumber and panel prices being traded fob mill on a daily basis.
I have a dream…that lumber traders making these transactions would willfully and honestly share these transactions without self serving interests, rather for the greater good of our beloved lumber industry, that all businesses and people may prosper and engage in fair trade with faith and confidence that they are being enlightened with truth.
I have a dream that one day The Scouting Report will become the industry standard for transparent current lumber and panel prices provided “for the lumber industry; by the lumber industry.”
