survey results
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.
