"New additions to Mill2Market reports include: MSR-2400 and #2 Prime dimension lumber and premium and standard decking. We will continue to add more grades and products as we grow," said Bob Bratton.

Forest2Market, a provider of market price and trend data and supply chain expertise for the wood products industry, announced today that it has expanded its Mill2Market lumber market reports to include additional grades of southern yellow pine dimension lumber, timbers and decking. The reports now include:

  • Dimension lumber—MSR-2400 (new), #1, #2 Prime (new), #2, #3 and #4
  • Timbers—#1 and #2
  • Decking—Premium (new) and standard (new)

These changes will take effect with the August 16-22 issue of the report, which will be delivered to subscribers on August 23, 2012.

“This is part of a natural evolution for Mill2Market,” says Bob Bratton, Manager of Forest2Market’s lumber practice. “When we issued our first report in 2009, it contained 76 price points. Now, less than three years later, we report 1,566 individual market price and trend metrics. With every new subscriber, we can report on more products and grades. And we’ll continue to add more indicators as we grow.”
