Stumpage Prices

10/18/2017

After nearly two years of abnormally wet weather we finally had a couple months of drier weather.  Loggers were able to get in the woods and get some wood to the mill.  While most loggers aren’t caught up, purchasers showed interest in sales with greater volume or better than normal quality.  Stumpage prices ranged from $67 per thousand board feet for small volume of poor quality wood to $455 per thousand board feet for moderate volume of better than average quality timber.  Average volume and quality timber sold for about $125 to $175 per thousand board feet.
