Weekly Southern Yellow Pine Lumber Price Report

A transaction-based lumber price report that provides subscribers with the most important lumber market performance indicators. Orders and invoices are collected from subscribers, aggregated, and then reported back to subscribers only. As a result, prices reported are more accurate and precise than those of any other pricing services in the market.

Accurate market performance indicators

Access volume weighted average prices by grade and length (including MSR & mixed loads) for dimensioned lumber, decking and timbers, as well as price and volume changes from previous week and market price variation during the week.

Improved business performance

Use this data to base purchase price and sales negotiations on value, not price; make better-informed production and sales resource allocation decisions; and improve net sales realization and profits.

Southern Yellow Pine Lumber Price Benchmark

Benchmarks allow companies to compare their data with aggregated industry data from other organizations. Those interested in improving their performance use them to set meaningful goals, gain insight into trends occurring across the industry and discover how they are doing compared to their peers. With Forest2Market's Quarterly Lumber Price and Performance Benchmark, sellers and direct-from-mill buyers of lumber finetune their purchase and sales strategies.

Deeper insight into company's position in the market

Evaluate how overall business performance and other key performance indicators—volume of each product sold, price for each product, product mix by volume and species, and average lengths--compare to the market.

Better informed purchase and sales strategies and decisions

Evaluate overall sales and production mix and determine the most profitable grades and dimensions to produce given the mill's log quality, grade and dimension yields

More accurate end-of-month inventory reporting
