Wood Matters

Log Market - August

Prices for export logs delivered to NZ ports in August dropped an average of $4/m3 from July prices. As per the last couple of months this drop has been driven by the strengthening of the NZD against the USD. Exporters competing for supply at some ports and a slight increase in sale prices in China has buffered the downward movement in prices.


Clarky's Comment - Our NZ Inc. Strategic Advantage

For the NZ environment to support a significant move from commodity to high-end, high-price niche branding and marketing we really do need to get serious about expansion of tourism support infrastructure, funding of the predator-free initiative, and cleaning up our rivers and lakes.
