The French beech market analyzed by Claude Schnepf

Claude Schnepf heads Scierie et Caisserie de Steinbourg, one of the leaders in the beech market in France with 75,000 m3 processed annually, a capacity which will soon increase to 100,000 m3 thanks to a major investment program. The company exports 70% of its turnover outside the EU (€ 21m in 2019), mainly to China, a market that Claude Schnepf has known for 25 years... [Più ... ]

Where's the French oak market heading this autumn?

The first autumn auctions in France have just been launched by France's Natonal Forest Office (ONF) in a general uncertain political-economic climate. This lack of prospects also concerns the timber market in France. This is one of the conclusions to be drawn from the auction of September 8, 2020 which was not held in Beaune (Côte d'Or), as usual, but in Châtenoy-le-Royal (Saône-et-Loire) due to Covid-19. The entire auction therefore took place entirely online without the physical presence of buyers and observers in the auction room... [Più ... ]

Oak logs prices booming in France

Oak has become priceless in France!

France: upward trend in oak sales

The launch of the so-called labeled auctions (i.e. under the labels of quality, as in FSC etc.) organised by ONF (Office national des forêts) doesn't seem to have had any effect on the quality oak sales. This is one of the conclusions buyers and sellers could reach at the close of the latest auctions held early this summer. In the end of May, ONF announced that an annual oak price growth on average came up to 5%, while the volume of unsold goods reached 10% [Più ... ]

U.S.: Softwood and panel markets - Week 17, 2016

Last week's ales of framing lumber in US varied among species and producing regions. The cash market in Western S-P-F got a shot in the arm from strength in futures, and transportation hang-ups related to a rail trestle in Alberta that was destroyed by fire. Eastern S-P-F producers also caught the wave of increased activity. Elsewhere, trading was mixed, with the pace slowing in Southern Pine and trading in western species described as a grind. All told, the Random Lengths Framing Lumber Composite Price rose $4 [Più ... ]

U.S.: Softwood and panel markets - Week 18, 2016

Price trends in U.S. framing lumber were mixed last week, but the tone of the market was more upbeat in the second half of the week. The pace slowed in Southern Pine, as a waiting game developed between buyers and sellers. In contrast, prices advanced in Canadian S-P-F, although the bulk of those gains came early on momentum from the previous week’s action. [Più ... ]

U.S.: Softwood and panel markets - Week 19, 2016

With one major exception, trading in US framing lumber species was steady to active. Western and Eastern S-P-F set the pace with double-digit gains in the narrows of random dimension and studs. In the West, green Douglas Fir caught a wave of demand, while sales of dry framing picked up and posted at least modest gains. The major exception was Southern Pine; prices were vulnerable [Più ... ]

The first quarter came to a close with framing lumber prices still pointing upward. Early week strength in futures buoyed mill positions and trader confidence. Mill order files in various species extended into mid-April and beyond. By most accounts, demand was steady to brisk, and many buyers circulated back to their suppliers for coverage [Più ... ]

U.S.: Softwood and panel markets - Week 14, 2016

The second quarter got off to a quiet start in most framing lumber species, after a brisk close to the first quarter. Traders attributed the slower pace to the need to digest March purchases, and assess market prospects going forward. Spring break, vacation absences, and a reversal in the futures market were all cited as contributing factors [Più ... ]

U.S.: Softwood and panel markets - Week 16, 2016

Price trends in US framing lumber were mixed last week. Southern Pine was the primary exception to a wider weakening trend. A number of SYP mills were off the market as they caught up on late shipments. Torrential rains and floods preoccupied traders in East Texas, but other key markets picked up the slack. In other species, trading was generally liquid, but producers usually had to trim prices to entice buyers. [Più ... ]

U.S.: Softwood and panel markets - Week 10, 2016

Amid some mixed sentiment, framing lumber prices increased. Weather clouded the views of traders in some markets. But with warm temperatures across the East and a sense that the remainder of winter held little threat going forward, buyers stepped up purchases. Trading was especially active early on, as momentum from the previous week’s surge carried over through Tuesday. Activity eased at the mill level, as producers extended order files and raised prices — in some cases sharply [Più ... ]

U.S.: Softwood and panel markets - Week 12, 2016

A slower pace of sales was widely noted in the US lumber market of last week, but strength in prices of framing lumber prevailed. The gains mostly came early in the week on momentum carried over from the previous week. Many traders paused to digest recent purchases and higher prices. That approach was abetted by the Montreal Wood Convention and spring break, which took many traders out of their offices. Easter observances were an additional factor late in the week. The Random Lengths Framing Lumber Composite Price rose for an eighth straight week [Più ... ]
