Following the expiration of the 2006 Softwood Lumber Agreement (SLA 2006) in October 2015, the softwood lumber trade dispute between the US and Canada has once again become a contentious topic. The U.S. recently imposed company-specific countervailing duties (CVD) and anti-dumping (AD) tariffs of about 20.83% on Canadian softwood lumber shipped to the U.S. Our model projected that, due to the lumber tariffs, timber prices in the U.S. South could go up by about 7.3% over the next five years. For a more in-depth analysis, please refer to the full article published in the February issue of the Forestry Source, the Society of American Foresters (SAF) monthly newsletter.
