2Q 2019 TimberMart-South Bulletin

South-wide Stumpage Markets

Market conditions were challenging and South-wide average stumpage prices declined for all three major pine products in the 2nd Quarter. Hardwood saw timber stumpage was also down compared to 1st Quarter of 2019; however, hardwood pulpwood stumpage was up. In contrast to the 1st Quarter when persistent wet weather constrained supply, more normal weather conditions prevailed this quarter, easing accessibility to supply, which helped push prices downward.

This downward price movement was in line with the seasonal trend that has seen pine saw timber prices decrease quarter-over-quarter(Q/Q) in the 2nd quarter in 15 of the last 17 years. Similarly, pine chip-n-saw prices have decreased Q/Q in the 2ndQuarter in 14 of the last 16years, and in 19 of the last 20 years for pine pulpwood
