International Paper Company recently announced that in January 2014 the papermill at Courtland, Alabama will close!! That means there will be 230 trailer loads EVERY DAY that will have to go somewhere else. They're already showing up at PCA at Counce, TN. Not a good situation for pulpwood stumpage prices.

The good news is the continued strength of hardwood logs which is being fueled by the tie market (I guess that when Warren Buffet decided to buy a railroad everyone else figured maybe they should up-grade their infrastructure as well) and an improving furniture market. We have advocated for the growing of hardwoods on better sites (Oak SI of 75' or higher) for over 30 years, and now, the economics makes even more sense.
