Lumber prices drop further: Madison’s

May 15, 2024  By Madison’s Lumber Reporter



Glimmers of improving inquiry and increased sales volumes were blunted by an ongoing sense of oversupply and weak demand. 

In the week ending May 3, the price of Western S-P-F 2×4 #2&Btr KD (RL) was US$383 mfbm. This is down $25, or six per cent, from the previous week when it was $408. That week’s price is down $47, or 11 per cent from one month ago when it was $430 mfbm.

Compared to the same week last year, when it was $360 mfbm, that week’s price is up $23, or  six per cent.
