Missouri Timber Price Trends
Remember that one of the most valuable sources for information on log and timber markets is the local Missouri Department of Conservation Resource Forester or your Consulting Forester. Contact the nearest Forest District office for up-to-date, local advice. The Missouri Department of Conservation's Forestry Division, (573) 751-4115, will be happy to provide you with the name and address of the Resource Forester or MDC Regional Office nearest to you. You can locate a Consulting Forester by visiting the Mo. Consulting Forester's Association web site at: www.missouriforesters.comor by visiting the Private Land Assistance page of the MDC website http://mdc.mo.gov/landwater-care/conservation-contractors and scroll to the bottom of the page and click on Consulting forestry assistance under Available Contractors.
Not so long ago we published a “Forest Products Newsletter” which was later renamed the “Wood Products Bulletin”. This effort was discontinued several years ago. You will probably notice a slight change in format to this issue of the “Missouri Timber Price Trends”. We have added several articles that we feel provide some of the most up to date information that might be valuable to our industry today. It is an effort to get information out to our industry and combine the original efforts of the “Forest Products Newsletter” with the “Missouri Timber Price Trends”. Hope you like the changes and find the articles informative. Please let us know what you think.
