Survey results l.jpg
Survey Results

  • Sales of West Coast species average approximately 20% of the total sales volume to the individual companies.

  • A trend shows increases in these sales over the last 3 years.

  • Demand has been extremely strong for Alder, P.C. Maple and P.C. Birch.

  • But 80% report that they and the end users were unable to secure the lumber needed to satisfy demand.

    • They are either substituting species or grades to try and satisfy this void.

    • There is a growing frustration at both the Distribution and End User levels due to :

      • Inconsistencies in supply

      • Inconsistencies in grading from one mill to the next

      • Rapidly rising prices

      • * Not knowing what to expect in the future puts doubts into committing to these species in the future.

    • 90% of the responding members feel this is going to have long term ramifications

  • 100% of those responding would welcome a speaker from the WHA or individual companies to attend one of our educational meetings and discuss other West Coast species or discuss the problems we are currently facing.

  • Outlook to the future amongst the majority is positive.
