Japan anticipating reduced supply of softwood timber

29.01.2018 − 

The Japanese Forest Agency is anticipating a supply of approximately 1.37m m³ of European softwood timber in the first half-year of 2018, which would equate to a reduction of roughly 5% against the same period of last year.

Figures published in the Japan Lumber Journal show that the supply of timber from Europe in the first six months of last year had amounted to 1.45m m³. The estimates given for 2017 to date project a supply of European softwood timber totalling roughly 2.86m m³, almost 4.5% more than in 2016.
