Oak logs prices booming in France

Oak has become priceless in France! This statement may seem exaggerated but the examination of the auction results for the first five months of 2018 leaves no doubts about the current state of the oak market in France. Year-on-year and on average (see table 1), the price increase of logs reached 25%, exceeding 50% over two years [Ещё… ]

France: upward trend in oak sales

The launch of the so-called labeled auctions (i.e. under the labels of quality, as in FSC etc.) organised by ONF (Office national des forêts) doesn't seem to have had any effect on the quality oak sales. This is one of the conclusions buyers and sellers could reach at the close of the latest auctions held early this summer. In the end of May, ONF announced that an annual oak price growth on average came up to 5%, while the volume of unsold goods reached 10% [Ещё… ]

France: new auction labeling system affecting the oak prices?

French oak sawmill owners hope for the best and preferably faster, obviously. Even though they doubted that the so-called labeled auctions (i.e. under the labels of quality, as in FSC etc.) would have any immediate impact on the price of logs, they were hoping for the oak prices to stabilize. However, this does not seem to be the case judging by the results of the most recent auctions. [Ещё… ]

France: Maritime pine maintains firm prices

Good news for forest owners in southwestern France. In a French softwood roundwood market that has generally tended to falter, maritime pine stands firm this year. Over the course of the first half of 2015, prices have aligned at high levels, while over the last six months of the year, price stability prevailed. This observation applies in particular for roundwood with a volume larger than 1 m3, intended for producing lumber. ''In late autumn, the large volume roundwood (1,5 m3) is still marketed at around 40 euro/m3, standing, under bark,'' says Emmanuel de Montbron [Ещё… ]

Oak continues its momentum in France

For French forest owners there are some good news. For French sawyers, it's rather the opposite. The latest public auction organized in France in mid 2015, shows no pause in the oak roundwood market. Actually, the contrary can be noticed, with new tensions on supplies to sawmills resulting in significant price increases in many French production areas since the beginning of 2015 [Ещё… ]

Oak prices up in France

In the first quarter of 2015, oak wood is still kept on the trot in France. Trading activity of sawmills and timber procurers seems to be even more dynamic than in late 2014. Public auctions, currently taking place in Eastern France prove the above mentioned statement. There’s the minimum quantity of the outstanding goods, and demand outreaches supply (up to 20 bids for each attractive lot) [Ещё… ]
