This past year (2016) saw very healthy increases in the demand for quality US hardwoods, particularly in the export markets. Nation-wide export volumes exceeded 2015 volumes by approximately 11%, with Asian demand reported to be better than expected (China alone imported 24% more than they had in 2015.) Though European hardwood demand tailed off slightly in the fourth quarter, exports to the UK, Germany, and Portugal were up in 2016.
