35. there is a surplus of logs available, in Oregon they are racing to cut it down before it rots

The fires in Oregon last year killed a lot of trees - but they are still salvageable for lumber.

Loggers are literally in a race against time to cut as much as they can before it rots in place.

For years we were getting a ton of very cheap imports of lumber from Canada, enough that some US saw mills shut down. Now Canada is producing less due to pine beetle problems in BC. There are also major bottlenecks in scaling up production due to limited kiln drying and pressure treating facilities.
