Bill Bourgeois Banning log exports opinion
The topic of banning log exports is increasing in popularity again. Even if more logs were available to the secondary wood manufactures (value-added producers) it would not necessarily result in an increase in their products. Not all remanufacturers are limited by timber/fibre supply. However, those who are need a long-term fibre supply at a competitive cost. There are barriers are certainty of timber/fibre supply and a desirable investment climate.
