Vancouver, B.C. The February issue of WOOD MARKETS’ China Bulletin – released today – summarizes China’s rebounding growth in log and lumber imports during the second half of 2012, and especially since the start of the fourth quarter. Despite the slowdown throughout most of 2012 in the housing market, China’s total forest products import and export trade value still increased in 2012, reaching US$120 billion, up 3% from 2011.
