You had said we are at a nice “equilibrium” price now in plywood and OSB. But this equilibrium price is still above historical. Do you see plywood and OSB prices returning to historical average? Do you think this price is a new normal?

Hi @Madison_s_Lumber_Rep do you think the tariff increase (doubling actually) on the Canadian LBM products will just have a linear markup of the Plywood and OSB prices, or there will be a more pronounced and disproportionate effect on prices and the US market?
@Jeff_Lassle @Matt_Layman @Jim_Schumacher @Michael_Haas @william_giguere what do you all think?

we will never see those old “historical” prices again. So when I say “equilibrium” i mean current.
