TimberMart-South (TMS) collects market data from a broad cross section of the timber industry. Our reporters, both companies and individuals, are actively engaged in the day-to-day operation of selling and buying timber on the stump and delivering to yards and mills. From these reports, over each quarter, these data are sorted and tabulated to arrive at a grouping of price ranges, low and high. From these groupings, a simple average is obtained for each state, area, and product.

TMS publishes data gathered with diligence and from sources considered reliable. We gather and publish information as it exists and do not attempt to set or influence prices. Specific markets, because of variations in field work and time element, sometimes result in prices which are somewhat lower or higher than those published.

These are not absolute lows or highs; but an average of lows and average of highs.

Be aware that prices vary greatly depending on many factors and a reported price does not reflect the only price at which an item has been sold.
