ABSTRACT
The article reports on the declining performance of log export sales in New Zealand. Domestic log sales in the country have become constrained in volume but stable in price whilst export sales are starting to decline both on volumes and price. Information is given on the sales performance of radiata pine log. For forest growers, the declining value of the U.S. dollar against the New Zealand dollar is welcome news in an industry that has been lacking a lot of good news over the last couple of years.
