Now that is weird. I get shocked at the prices you poor suckers get for
stumpage, since here in the PNW we get 2 to 3 times as much for saw logs.
Then you turn around and tell me that your pulp wood prices are 2 to 3
times what we get here in the PNW.
Here in timber country, $30 a ton for pulp logs is considered a very good
price. Everybody leaps into thinning and stand conversion when prices
get that high.
I guess the moral is that you should grow for local markets.
