We have seen an increase. I believe it is due to other export/ domestic markets slowing down. Which in turn has had us move some volume to China.

China seems to be the buyer thatā€™s always on the market, is that right?

They absorb a lot of the hardwood lumber. I believe somewhere in the neighborhood of 25% in years past. Not sure where that percentage is with their economy currently.
