This article focuses on the state of the New Zealand forest industry. As of September 2009, the total log export shipments out of New Zealand were 905,000 cubic metres. Major log markets are China, Korea, India and Japan. Demand and supply are expected to slowdown during the Christmas period. There is a concern over the U.S. dollar exchange rate in the sawmilling sector.
