DescriptionEven if you don't sell logs or lumber to foreign customers, the international hardwood market can impact your business in significant ways, and smart business leaders are taking notice so that they are ready for shifting market impacts. Many people believe that lumber exporting is only an opportunity for larger sawmills. However, even if you have a portable mill operating somewhere in the Midwest and sell your higher grade lumber to a yard, there is a high probability that some of that lumber will eventually be exported. Furthermore, if you sell your lumber locally under prevailing market prices, that price likely is influenced by the export market.
