Log and lumber prices will be less volitile but also less attractive in 2019, according to ERA’s Kevin Mason, while Forest2Market says 2019 markets will be mostly flat or trending down except for offshore imports, pulp and CLT. Elsewhere, a preliminary report confirms rail embargoes on Canadian commodities; while Resolute, EACOM, Nechako Lumber and Active Energy Group make news in their communities.

In other news: concerns are raised about Wood Buffalo National Park; BC’s caribou recovery strategy; and the lack of protection for Nova Scotia’s endangered species; while plastic takes a beating in Halifax, Washington State, and the corporate headquarters of Samsung Electronics.
