Welcome to Extension Forestry's Timber Blog. The purpose of this Blog is to keep forest landowners, farm managers, resource professionals, foresters, loggers, timber buyers, sawmill owners, and interested citizens abreast of current timber prices and demand for hardwood (sawlogs, poles, ties, veneer, staves, etc.), pine, and pulpwood; firewood pricing; harvesting conditions; forest industry news; governmental affairs; market trends; niche markets; and other applicable forest utilization topics. Since this is an information-oriented forum, no advertisements will be posted.
To give you an example of a posting: Say you are a timber buyer, consulting forester, or sawmill operator in the west-northwest part of the state who is witnessing a big demand for quality basswood sawlogs, let me know and I will post the information. Conversely, if the white oak market is lagging due to an oversupply of sawlogs and reduced demand overseas, let me know and I will post the information.
I look forward to providing a medium in which forest utilization topics can be transferred throughout the state in a fast, engaging, and expedient manner.
