The Society for American Foresters will hold an one-hour Understanding Timber Markets Using Timber Supply and Economic Data webinar on September 23rd from 2 to 3 pm EDT.
Lumber markets took a rollercoaster ride at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in Spring 2020 and finally returned to more stable prices in mid-2021. As lumber markets saw increased demand from consumers, data on timber supply were essential to understand the economics behind lumber markets.
This webinar will present how the USDA Forest Service’s Timber Products Output survey can be used to inform industrial and non-industrial uses of roundwood across the US. In addition, a background on how timber markets are linked with the US economy and a reflection on the last two years of lumber market dynamics will be discussed.
This webinar is brought to you by SAF’s Inventory and Biometrics (A1) Working Group.
This webinar is free for SAF members $10 for non-members
