North American softwood lumber consumption up

16.05.2012 − 

The minor upswing registered in demand for softwood lumber in the USA and Canada at the end of 2011 has so far remained unabated in 2012. North American softwood lumber consumption in the first quarter of 2012 was roughly 6% higher than a year earlier at 26m m³. This is being mainly attributed to the unusually mild weather in the last few months, which enabled building activity to continue largely unbroken in both the USA and Canada, creating a continuous outflow of softwood lumber during the winter.
