What Will Business Look Like In 2023?

August 3, 2022

The Association office is receiving a lot of calls from members that are asking what we think business will be like next year?  Lumber and prices are FINALLY starting to make some sense.   More stock is available and people are quoting prices out a little further than in the past.  Sawmills are finally starting to reduce log prices to reflect lumber prices on the other end.

Many mills are reporting that their labor situation is not as dire as it was earlier in the year, but no one reported that they did not need to hire additional help.

The overall feeling was it is not all doom and gloom and there will be orders to be had but sales people must go back to listening towhat their customers want and be reincarnated as a sales person and not an order taker.
