I dont know about $90/ton but the price is good.  I deal with Finch in glensfalls ny and their price for hardwood has gone up $7/ton since june of '13 but if you look at past supply and demand trends they should have raised is almost $14 per.  I think most of the mills have held a pretty hard line in terms of priceing this winter, I know at least locally here the mills were oftley tight on inventory mid winter and they dident budge a bit.

who doesnt want to know!!!! 90 a ton thats some pretty money. the big mills near me finch, ti, could really give a crap about the little man they will talk the talk but havent walked the walk, finch is advertising for wood to cut!! should have cut your own wood when you had the chance!!!! trucking kills the profit

90 a ton for pulp??? something doesn't sound right.  if they are really paying that much, I'd sell my logs and studwood to em too

Those numbers get real skewed when you look at the fact that some mills are buying clean chips too. I still dont know of any 90 a ton prices, but I know a big operator here making clean chips who was pretty happy this winter. Mind you with a couple years worth of stumpage lined up and a variety of species part of that came down to the mills needing certain species and needing it now, and these guys moved iron around to get it and that commands a higher price.
It ain't easy...
