Missouri Timber Price Trends tracks market prices for Stumpage and
Delivered Logs. Reports on the Stumpage Market are received from
Missouri Department of Conservation Resource Foresters and private

delivered log prices and are compiled from reports submitted by sawmills
and other wood processing plants. These reports should serve as a general
guide to track stumpage and delivered log prices. Landowners should
