Page 38FREEMAN -Continued from page 37service handle the logistics ofFreemans lumber products.Richard and Charles attribute thesuccess of Freeman Lumber to theiremployees and being a progressivecompany in a competitive market. “Weare a progressive company in that wecontinue to update our mill so it’s efficientand we’re getting excellentrecovery,” Charles explained. “Peoplehave asked us how we manage abusiness this well with just two peopleat the helm, and I tell them it’sbecause we’re not just ‘two’ peoplerunning this operation. We rely on a lotof good people and our successbelongs to our people.”By 1992 they had installed the company’sfirst dry kilns. Today they operatetwo boilers with a million boardfeet of lumber capacity per charge.In 1999 the Freeman’s literally rebuilttheir business from the ground up.“Our first move was installing a 10-footcurved sawing line in 1999,” Richardsaid. “At that point we were reallyfocused on stud production and shortlyafter we began a series of projectsin that mill which involved the introductionof the bin sorter, an optimizedboard edger and later we installed atrimmer. We completely rebuilt ourplaner mill with a linear optimizer anda 20-bin sorter so that we can nowhandle both studs and random lumberin that processing facility. We alsoinstalled a moulding plant with an 8-head precision moulder; trim line,stacker and other lumber handlingequipment. Then in 2007 we com-pletely renovated our random logsawmill. So we’ve put a lot of work intobecoming efficient and maximizingour recovery.”The equipment at Freeman includesthree primary breakdown lines.“Because we are a White Pinesawmill, we still run a Cardinal carriage.We have a thin kerf double-cutband on it. Our stud line is a ComacDDM6, which is like a small sawmill ina box—it’s a curve sawing line. Ourmain primary breakdown line is aComact OLI with a transverse fed fullyoptimized Shurman gang edgerbehind it. We have one Comact andone by PHL optimized board edgers,and two bin sorters. The technologywe have in place coupled with ourskilled labor force gives us the abilityto produce 75 million feet a year.”Charles said they also have a transversemoisture meter, “so our customerscan be assured we have goodconsistency in our drying process. Ourtarget is 10 to 12 percent moisturecontent.”Freeman Lumber has three foresttechnicians on its staff and is committedto providing their customers withwood products harvested from sustainablymanaged forests. To obtainthis, the firm has established a Chainof-Custodysystem that provides a linkbetween certified forest and the rawmaterials used in their manufacturingprocesses. Forest StewardshipCouncil (FSC) and SustainableForestry Initiative (SFI) certified,Richard said, “We are currentlyinvolved in a project that we expectwill lead to the FSC certification of ourwoodlands as well.”Harry Freeman & Son Limited is amember of the Maritime LumberBureau, Forest Products Associationof Nova Scotia, and the WoodProducts Manufacturers Associationof Nova Scotia. Richard Freeman iscurrently president of the ForestProducts Association of Nova Scotiaand past chair of the Maritime LumberBureau. Certified to North EasternLumber Manufacturers Association(NELMA) standards, the companyalso obtained certification by theInternational Organization forStandardization (ISO 9001).

The demand for Softwoodwill start to pick up and prices shouldbegin to improve by spring.”A source in Kansas, which servestreating plants, secondary manufacturers,domestic and internationalwholesalers and home centers alsosaid fuel prices have climbed dramaticallyin recent weeks. “We expect tosee oil prices continue to rise as thevalue of the dollar continues todecline while the government continuesto attempt to stimulate the economythrough increasing the moneysupply,” he said. “Other issues importantto our industry right now are systemicrelative to the general economysuch as bank credit and job availability.With these tight reins on credit,and the job market getting tougher,The Softwood Forest Products Buyerconstruction will be on hold for a longtime.“Industrial products seem to be movingbetter than others,” he explained.“New construction is down historicallyin this area.”Looking into the year ahead, he said,“Barring any catastrophic eventsaffecting our national economy orsecurity, we expect to see the tidechange for our industry with mildimprovement throughout 2011.”Another source in Kansas said pricesrecently pushed higher in response tosupply-side issues and marginallystronger demand. “Log shortageshave been approaching sinceNovember. Some of the holiday shutdownsleft some mills with little tooffer.”Like others in the region, theSoftwood supplier said transportationavailability is an ongoing challenge.“We’ve lost a lot of mills and a lot ofthe truckers too. Rates are naturallygoing to be higher because availabilityis low.”For the year ahead, the MidwesternSoftwood supplier is optimistic butguarded. “In normal times we shouldsee a seasonal pick up by the spring.But we haven’t seen ‘normal’ times intwo years.”•BLUE BOOK -Continued from page 17member is both easy and relativelyinexpensive.

Lumberprofessionals can join for around $500(U.S.) because of limited time discountspresently available.“The membership pays for itself withinthe first few times it’s accessed,”Carr explained. “If you save yourselffrom just one bad account, you’vepaid your membership ten times over.”“Most companies will relate the BlueBook to the old Lumbermen’s RedBook,” Executive Vice President JimBartelson explained. “Once they makethat connection, the light bulb goesoff. Of course there are some hugedifferences in the Blue Book and theold Red Book, one of them being thedepth of data, the ability to pull creditreports or business reports withEquifax information and then theaccounts receivable aging data is ahuge value to those companies lookingfor credit information on how acompany pays their bills. Also we’veattended and participated in industryconventions including theSoutheastern Lumbermen’sAssociation, the Mississippi LumberManufacturers Association, BritishColumbia Wholesale LumberAssociation, and recently, the NationalHardwood Lumber Association. We’veBlue Book Online Home Pageheard from many companies thatwe’ve spoken with at these meetingsand conventions that are so thankfulto have another service out there thathas replaced the Red Book. We saw avoid and a need and we’re workingtogether with the industry to fill it.”Subscribers (or members) are currentlybenefiting from this listing datain two important ways through BlueBook Online Services (BBOS).Members can use BBOS to convenientlyand cost effectively search,sort, and review listings, of individualcompanies or entire market segments.Beyond that, users can savesearches (for future use), record pri-Blue Book Services' corporate headquarters islocated in Carol Stream, Ill.vate notes on companies, or createcustom lists to closely monitor newcustomers or high-risk accounts.“Blue Book information and reportsare currently assisting lumber companies—everyday—inmaking safe andprofitable business decisions,” summarizedCarr, “and we encouragethose not yet taking advantage tolearn more by requesting a free introductorywebinar.”The developing partnership with thelumber industry serves as the solidfoundation through which Blue Book isable to deliver value back to currentand future lumber members. Carrexplained, “We work ‘hand-in-glove’with the fresh produce trade and theconsistent result is accurate, timely,and reliable information. Thankfully,we are seeing the same working relationshipdevelop with the lumberindustry.”“For example, an ever increasingnumber of lumber companies—frommills to secondary manufacturers towholesalers—are routinely submittingtheir accounts receivable aging information,”Bartelson said. Displayed inBlue Book business reports (fromunspecified sources), the expandingamount of A/R aging information isanother important tool to evaluatecredit risk. “In a challenging economy—whereevery dime counts—thisis real tangible benefit.”For companies now considering submittingtheir A/R aging data, BlueBook Services understands the challengesof multiple priorities andresource limitations. Fortunately,today’s technology makes it rathereasy to safely submit A/R aging datain standard formats. In fact, companiesusing accounting applicationssuch as DMSi Agility software orWoodPro software will find it a realsnap because of the special utilitybuilt right into it.The combination—of a powerful lumberindustry database teamed withcurrent credit data—cannot be foundelsewhere. This fact is one reason whyBlue Book Services is one of theNorth American Wholesale LumberAssociation’s (NAWLA’s) “recommendedand approved serviceproviders.”BBOS was first launched at NAWLA’s2009 Traders Market and severalproduct innovations were introducedat the 2010 convention recently heldin Chicago.“The enthusiastic industryresponse—in the form of verified listings,more subscribers, and increaseddata—confirms Blue Book is on theright path,” concluded Carr, “We areproud to be working closely with lumberprofessionals to develop a best-inclasscredit rating resource which willreliably serve member companies andstrengthen the industry.”•

Ray also recommendedSFPA member companies offer SFPAtechnical publications at their exhibitsat trade shows for dealers and distributors.SFPA reported that much of theBuilding Systems Committee’s discussioncentered on how to increase theuse of wood in nonresidential structuresand what types of tools andinformation might help encouragearchitects and structural engineers todesign with wood. Bob Browder withthe Southern Pine Inspection Bureauaddressed the group as well.The Special Products Committee discussedthe remodeling market andSFPA noted it wants to increase marketingand communication efforts withwomen, significant decision-makersregarding the products and stylesused in remodeling projects. TheInternational Committee was updatedon a new website designed to supportSouthern Pine in internationalmarkets and also reviewed the association’sstrategic plan for internationalmarket development. The website willbe launched later this year, accordingto the association.SFPA attendees at a roundtable onmembership discussed ways to helprecruit new members for the organization.SFPA has set the seminar programat Expo 2011 next year inAtlanta, which was a main topic of discussionat this year’s Expo Committeeroundtable.The SFPA also elected a new slateof officers.

I would say it’s fair. Is it booming?No. Is it in the tank? No. It’sbumping along I think.”Supplying Eastern White Pine,Southern Yellow Pine, Sugar Pine,Western Red Cedar and Douglas Fir,the contact mentioned his customersdon’t order lumber until they are runninglow. “People do not stock anymore.They wait until they are down totheir last board. It’s very hard to getpeople to restock, even when oursalesmen notice that a buyer is out ofa particular item, they mention it tothem and the buyer wants to wait andsee if he gets an order for it first.Regardless of what you’re selling,they buy it when they have an orderfor it.“This lumber is used for architecturalpurposes. It’s not like siding so thehigh-end architectural jobs that thislumber is used for have slowed aswell,” he continued. “Sugar Pine usedto be the number one board that wesold but now it has come way down inpricing, which has made it very competitive.People have switched toEastern White Pine now and they’vekind of just settled in. It should beContinued on page 41

January/February 2011 Page 41NORTHEAST TRENDS -Continued from page 40moving better than it is.”He also mentioned that supply hasnot been an issue. “Nobody is overstocked. Everybody has their logdecks down but we haven’t had anyreal problems getting what we need.”As for inventory levels the contactsaid, “We’ve been trying to tighten upwherever we can. I’d say our inventorylevels are about the same. Our pricesare stable, they may have inched up alittle on select items.”The source said other issues includetransportation rate increases. “I understandthat the truckers aren’t makingbig bucks, but our cost for trailer loadshave really gone up along with availability.We have mills that have beenlate and normally they didn’t have thatproblem and what they’re saying isthey can’t get truckers to pick up theirloads. I don’t know if that’s becausethey’re figuring it to low when theyquote it and then it comes in too highand they keep shopping it or if there isa real shortage of available trucking.They’re not telling us. So trucking isdefinitely an issue, especially here inNew England,” he explained.•ONTARIO/QUEBEC TRENDS -Continued from page 28and for that, you need cash, whichmeans sales, and the sales are notthere,” he said with a rueful laugh.The sales manager at an Ontario millwas a bit more optimistic about thecoming year, even as he acknowledgeda less-than-stellar 2010.“I would say that right now everything isreally slow, but it’s that time of the year,”he said. “But everything looks prettygood, or at least, better for 2011.”He said he foresees increased demandfor softwood because of increasingneed in places like China. He addedthat he believes that with the mill closuresof the past couple of years, thosefacilities that remain will stand a betterchance of building their market share.“There are a lot less mills that will crankup the production, and those that do willbe on limited shifts,” he said. “The supplyand demand is getting moresquared up.“Between the consumption in Chinaand in the North American market, weshould see a steady increase in pricesin 2011 and quite a bit more in 2012,” hepredicted.That forecast would be music to theears of the vice president of sales atone Quebec wholesale facility. His operation,which handles SPF as well asYellow Pine, has seen slightly bettersales this year over 2009.“It’s stable, but there’s nothing greatgoing right now,” he said. “It’s not goingup like crazy. The industry, meaning thehousing market, is not back yet. I thinkpeople are keeping their money in theirpockets and are not buying.”He said he is guardedly optimisticabout 2011.“I wish to say yes, but we’re not thereyet,” he said about success in the comingyear. He said the market still lacksshort term stability. “We need to take itstep by step. It’s not so bad, but it’s notregular. It’s hot and cold all the time.”He said that uncertainty is reflected inevery level of the industry, including withhis customers, who consist mainly oflumberyards, lumber retailers, and timberframers.“What we’re seeing right now with ourcustomers is that they are opening laterthan usual and closing earlier thanusual,” he said. “If they usually open at 7a.m., they’re opening at 9 a.m., and ifthey usually close at 5 p.m., they’reclosing at 3 p.m.”That sentiment was echoed by the generalmanager at another Ontario millthat specializes in wide plank flooring,and which cuts Pine and Fir.“It hasn’t changed much for me,” hesaid of sales in the past year. “Demandis steady.”His company, which sells directly todomestic lumberyards, has beguninvesting in more Internet advertising ina bid to drive up sales. He said hebelieves the industry’s best hope liesacross its southern border.•SOUTH/SOUTHEAST TRENDS -Continued from page 28confidence is still very low.”He added that unless unemploymentrates change, “we’re just not going tosee any improvement. At one point Ihad hoped that we would see a significantimprovement by the secondquarter of 2011, but I’m beginning tothink it could be well into the year oreven into 2012.”Handling a variety of Softwoodspecies, the supplier also mentionedaccounts receivables as a troublespot. “It’s one thing to sell it but anotherthing entirely trying to collect yourmoney on it.”He said his inventory is down 60 percentfrom two years earlier and pricesare holding steady. “We’re seeingsome good prices on Cypress. TheNo. 2 grade prices are up and pricesare down along with demand for theSelect grades.”Transportation rates have been fairlystable he said, however there is ashortage of trucks.For 2011 the contact hopes to at leaststay at the profit levels of 2010.“Hopefully we’ll see a pick up in businessthat we can hang our hat on bythe third quarter.”A Southern Yellow Pine manufacturerin Georgia hopes for a better kick offto 2011 than he experienced in 2010.“Southern Yellow Pine decking wasdepressed late in 2009,” he explained.“Then it went on a good streak thatlasted into the summer of 2010.”Later, he said decking prices droppednearly $350. “The downside of thatwas so extreme, prices reached levelslower than I’ve seen since 1980.”Log supply was also difficult towardsthe end of 2010 according to the manufacturer.“The premium grade logsare hard to find. I’m not sure we’ll seea good set of circumstances for thisyear but I can say that buyers arestocking up already because theprices are so slow.”•PACIFIC WESTERN LUMBER, INC.Two locations to serve your Specialty Lumber NeedsMAIN OFFICE:Lakewood, WA800-232-2132 Fax: 253-581-1343Lake Oswego, OR800-819-4238 Fax: 503-595-0948• Manufacturers and wholesale distributors.• Appearance Douglas Fir & Western RedCedar beams – green or kiln dried.• Milled Log Home patterns, profiles andcants.• Fabricated timber trusses.• Timber frame components.• Lathe turned Douglas Fir/Whitewood/Cedar logs, up to 18”diameter, 8’ to 85’ lengths.• Kiln Dried 4x4 Appearance Grade Hem-Fir & Douglas Fir.• Wood dowels – 2” to 7” diameter.• Agricultural posts, poles and stakes.Visit our website:

Our customers seemcautiously optimistic for the newyear. No one is predicting a runawaymarket, but everyone sees animproved market over this currentyear shaping up.”Vince Mast at Hampton LumberSales in Portland, Ore., said, “We’vehad a terrific market recently. Now weare seeing Bernard a tougher “Bernie” time Bernstein with harshwinter Martinsville, weather slowing N.Y.— thingsup. We’re seeing very difficult loggingconditions, a lot of gypo loggers havegone broke and others have scaledback their timber cutting. Log pricesare rising and making it very difficult tocome out price wise on the lumberside. Lumber prices have been rising,not due to stronger housing, but dueto curtailments and closures bysawmills. The Chinese buyers havereally run the market up in narrows.There is a real shortage of 2 x4 material. There is a steady marketon wides due to a lack of logs of theright size. I feel that the generalstrong sales trend will continue nextyear. Right now lumber supplies aredown. Demand is good and inventoriesare extremely low. Januarythrough March looks very positive atthis point.”An Oregon wholesaler said, “I don’tknow how to describe themarket. We’ve seen price increasesover the last two months on greenDoug Fir of 25 to 30 percent! But I amhaving two of my worst monthsever. September 18 prices was $170on green Doug Fir. Now it is$255. That’s up 45 percent! When Ican get an order, I cannot find thewood. Mills are completely sold outon many items. We deal in mostlyhigh end items and the material is inshort supply.” He said California retailersare seeing very slow sales andalmost no homes are being built inlower mountainous regions ofCalifornia. James Campbell Adams JrBob Glastonbury,Maurer, of Swanson Conn.— GroupInc., Glendale, Ore., said, “With forestproducts prices bouncing alongthe bottom of historical lows for thelast three or four years the natural tendencyas one approaches a new yearis to think – we have to get better –we’ve seen the bottom and there’s noway to go but up. What else wouldyou expect from an ever optimistic,glass half full lumberman? There areskeptics, of course who claim that ifyou project prices to get better everyyear then eventually one year priceswill improve and you’ll actually be rightand they have a good point, howeverthere may be other compelling reasonsto expect higher domestic pricesin western lumber in 2011.“Some of those reasons like otheryears are based on the negative newsthat comes from mill closures, curtailmentsand other production cutbacks,and those trends will continue nextyear and the subsequent lack of supplyshould match or lag demand withthe effect that the market experienceshigher prices. There are two otherfactors though that should impact pricinggoing forward in 2011. The first isthe shortage of raw material (logs) torun the mills that are still open. The2009 and 2010 timber harvest inOregon is the lowest since thedepression of the 30’s. There hasn’tbeen a BLM (Bureau of LandManagement) timber sale in southernOregon for over two years. Log costshave jumped in price over the fourthquarter of 2010 and it looks like priceswill stay high. The second factor is theincreased volume that is finding itsway to the docks for export to Chinaand the Chinese market doesn’t showany signs of waning in the short term.For those reasons we expect domesticprices to be better in 2011,although the demand may stay flat.”Richard “Dick” KernsPortland, Ore.— •OBITUARYSt. Paul, Minn.—Ken Boehmer,69, recently died.
