ABSTRACT
This article focuses on recent changes to forest ownership throughout New Zealand as of November 2005. In the North Island the market has been dominated by the closure of the Rainbow Mountain sawmill. This means suppliers are now struggling to move saw logs into the domestic market and chip logs have suddenly become scarce. Roundwood sales and prices in the south have been strong over the winter, probably as a consequence of farm conversions. The export market has been very mixed over the last three months. India is providing the best returns with wharf prices being five to ten dollars a cubic meter better than can be expected out of a very flat Korean market.
