4Cast: 24-Month Timber Price Forecast

Forest2market’s Stumpage Price 4Cast is a unique industry offering with a near-term supply chain application focus – average monthly prices for the next 24 months. The stumpage prices being forecasted are based on our market transaction data, which means there is a direct benchmark value in the forecast rather than using it as a relative index of market dynamics.

Along with relating the impact of global and national effects on local markets, the models consider real world factors (including weather and ground conditions) that influence day-to-day operations and decisions. Finally, the models are updated quarterly, reflecting market dynamism that is a reality in today’s globally linked economy.

High-Quality Data

Large sets of very granular data allow the forecaster to find strong correlations, thereby reducing forecast deviation. The data we collect and the methods we employ to store it ensure forecasts with small deviations.

Local-Market Focus

Our models are built on local timber markets, which means 4Cast results relate to actual prices being paid for wood fiber in a real market.

Unmatched Experience

Different markets have different characteristics that make them unique. Forest2Market breadth of experience and intimate knowledge of regional timber markets allows for real-world insights into the factors that drive individual market performance.
