Northern Blue Mountain Domestic and Export Log Markets:

What are they buying?

Friday, April 4, 2014 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

This wil be an opportunity for woodland owners, loggers and others to learn about the current log, chip, pole and firewood markets available in this region, including what appears to be a consistent log export market.  The following log buyers have been invited and have agreed to participate.

Jim Thomas, Weyerhaeuser Company, The Dalles (export); Eric Oien, Teevin Bros, Umatilla (export); Ray Liebe, Pacific Lumber and Shipping, Longview, WA (export); Bruce Skvarch and Buck Fullerton, Boise Cascade, La Grande; Ed Pearson, Blue Mountain Lumber Products, Pendleton; Jim Zacharais, JayZee Lumber, Joseph; David Schmidt, Integrated Biomass Resources, Wallowa.

Each buyer will provide a brief overview (15 minutes) of what they are buying (specs), market trends, and any differences in scaling practices (export).  There should be plenty of time for questions.

In addition, Butch Tansey, Tansey Forest Management, will describe his experience selling into the export market, including lessons learned.

Please let us know if you are attending by calling the OSU Extension Union County Office at 541-963-1010 by Wednesday, April 2.
