Pine market
« on: June 13, 2018, 11:44:51 AM »
.. or should I say lack of a pine market. Why is there no demand? My son has been hauling for a tree guy with his tri axle grapple truck for a couple weeks, 200 loads of real nice 100 footers, most of them blow overs, destined for a tub grinder because nobody wants it...

There's been little interest in white pine where I am til about late last summer. Right now I can't keep up with board and batten. Some don't care if it's seasoned. I've sold two separate orders a few weeks ago. $4100.00. That goes a long way towards the new shop. I love feedback on the milling quality also. Both customers said they've never had better. :)
Don't really like milling this stuff but my production rate is not bad on my mill.

There is no new housing construction happening, couple that with the lower maintenance alternatives out there and the demand is flat.  Read an article earlier today that something along the lines of 50% of the millennial generation have no plans to own a home - let that sink in.  It's hard enough to buy a home when you really want one and are willing to make the sacrifices necessary to pull it off, but if you don't really care to own one then the market falls on it's face when nobody is out there pushing for more.  I sure don't want to own major stands of pine in another 25 years.

Huge drop in desire to own homes, yet homes cost more than they ever have.  Too much inflationary monetary policy.  Thanks FOMC.

Wow.  I'd take them.  I can cut board fence and sell for close to a dollar a foot.  Make 0.50/foot even with costs.  But sadly I am way out of town.  No one else in the NE want 100' white pine?  Peter?

You can send the nice clear ones up here. You can cut them down to 50', if you really have to.  :D

Storm trees are a bad investment, You don't know what's inside, Most times the log has a crack in it, When you open it up your lumber will fall apart.
At $2000 a load how many do you want?

There are some, but not booming around here, noting compared to 2006, it shows overall too given the price increase of existing homes.
