In The Media

After lumber prices have reached historical levels (~ $1600 mfbm), prices in the month of June drop by 52%, worst month on record since 1978.  John Duncanson, Executive VP of Corton Capital Inc. and Timber Analyst on the Corton Global Timber Fund, believes this drop will be short-lived, and expects the prices to be back in the $1000-1200 mfbm range by September, watch interview here.

Mike and Debbie Hickey, woodlot owners located in Nawigewauk (outside Hampton NB), have a youtube channel titled "Mike and Debbie Hickey From the Woodlot".   The latest video from the channel had a guest from SNB - Neil Damon.  Neil and Mike discuss management options for private woodlot owners, watch here.  

Stumpage Report

The Forest Products Commission produces an annual report on New Brunswick Private woodlot stumpage values.  The latest report prepared by the commission (2020) can be found here. 

You will notice that the stumpage report uses averages in $/M3.  Most stumpage agreements made between contractors and landowners on private are done in $/gmt, $/cord and/or $/mbf.  Stay tuned for next week's update as we will convert these averages to help owners and producers better understand the report.
