British Columbia demand for lumber decline

19 July 2012

The timber harvest in British Columbia, Cananda reached a record 90 million cubic metres in 2005 but fell dramatically the following four years to a 25-year low of just over 52 million cubic metres in 2009. Reduced demand for lumber in the US market, high manufacturing costs, high export tariffs to the US and deteriorating sawlog quality were the major reasons for the decline. Source: The Timber Network
