    Description

    The hardwood chip market gained some stability in the first half of 2004 with a modest upturn in hardwood pulp production and as timber supply emerged from the dampening clouds of unusually wet weather that prevailed throughout the Eastern United States in 2003. Although U.S. pulp production and exports increased in 2004, the hardwood pulp market began to show signs of saturation in the second half of the year, as hardwood market pulp prices peaked around mid-year. Weather also again became an issue in the third quarter with the late summer arrival of hurricane season in the South.
