Lower prices for timber products in Sweden
The recent positive trend in prices on wood products has turned. It started in early November when the Forest Owners' Association Norrskog lowered the price of pine logs with 35 SEK (Swedish crowns) and the price of spruce with 20 SEK per m3 (cubic meters over bark, ie, the log total volume over bark).
Now other companies have chosen to lower prices. Holmen lowers the price of spruce by 8 percent, a decrease of 50 per cubic meter. According to the business magazine Dagens Industri the forest product company Bergs Timber plan to cut prices up to 10 percent.
