Southern Yellow Pine Lumber Prices Soar in Feb. 2017

March 02, 2017
Author: John Greene

The composite southern yellow pine lumber price has surged since week 4 of 2017. Though there has been no resolution to the Softwood Lumber Agreement (SLA), the price increase is reflective of the larger market optimism and major stock market indices that have also soared since President Trump’s inauguration on January 20. Mild winter weather and an early arrival of Spring in many regions has also prompted inventory building that is a few weeks ahead of schedule.

Week 8’s price jumped to the $418/mbf mark, which is a level not seen since 2013. Week 8’s price is 11 percent above its January 2017 starting point of $387/mbf, and 27 percent above its 2016 week 8 price of $323/mbf.

A closer look at prices since the beginning of the year:

  • January 2017 Average Price: $379/mbf
  • February 2017 Week 1 Price: $388/mbf
  • February 2017 Week 2 Price: $407/mbf
  • February 2017 Week 3 Price: $418/mbf
