An Insight into US Hardwood Log and Lumber Exports

Global equity and commodity markets are currently seeing some significant fluctuations lately. As was mentioned in one of our last blog posts titled “Stock Market Make You Worried? Take a Walk in Your Woods,” it’s become more difficult to predict why these markets move the way they do. Certainly, there are some very visible events that influence investing trends, but the predictability of the market has become much more of an art than science over the years. This week’s news that the Administration is talking about placing tariffs on steel and aluminum imports created another mild panic, as stocks again lost ground again after mostly recovering from the “correction” that occurred several weeks back. Fears of a global trade war beginning have some advisors suggesting caution going forward, as Canada, the European Union and other countries (including China) may retaliate and create additional uncertainties that make specific equity sectors very unattractive – at least in the short term.

In our last installment on Timberland Investing, we discussed the unique ability that timber has as a capital asset to increase in quantity (and quality) simply because of biological growth. It’s certainly one of the exceptional “perks” associated with this investment vehicle, and is a variable that can be improved by sound forest management practices.
