Lumber Shipments by NELMA Mills Continues Record Pace

Through the first 9 months of 2017, shipments of lumber from NELMA mills continue to outpace 2016’s totals.  A total of 702 million board feet of northeastern softwoods was shipped to the marketplace January through September of this year.  This represented 377.5 million board feet of Dimension lumber, primarily construction lumber stamped SPFs, and 324.7 million board feet of Eastern White Pine.  Both totals exceed the same period last year by 2.5% and the highest quantity of shipments in 10+ years.
