The article provides a market report on domestic and export logs in New Zealand as of August 2007. The demand profile for S grade, or small branched, sawlogs is slightly less than supply across most regions as companies shift logging crews to blocks that can produce more domestic grade logs. While prices have remained stable, tree growers from South Island certainly get the best of the price opportunities, particularly those from Canterbury. Shipping cost for a cubic meter of log to Korea hit an all time high at around the high US$50s in May.
