June 18, 2013, Edmonton, Alta. – Values of lumber, pulp and paper, and panelboard manufactured by Alberta Forest Products Association member companies totalled approximately $671 million for the 1st quarter of 2013.

"These prices are the result of some of the best lumber and panelboard markets that we have seen in several years," said Brady Whittaker, AFPA president and CEO. “Strong revenues translate into investments in facilities, communities, and our forests.”

Whittaker noted that while prices have moderated during the 2nd quarter of 2013, the industry remains in an excellent competitive position.
