International Woodfiber Report: South Central pulpwood prices stable through second quarter

RICHMOND, VA , July 19, 2013 (RISI) - 

South Central roundwood and chip prices were mostly flat in mid-July, matching second quar­ter results, contacts noted. Wetter weather recently, however, especially in Alabama, may chal­lenge the current stability later in the third quarter, a manager noted.

Looking back, both Eastside and West, second quarter pine roundwood prices were broadly unchanged compared to the first quarter, according to RISI's International Woodfiber Report. Though unchanged, aver­age prices represent a noticeable increase from the same period a year ago.
