Letter From President - Rob Paradise

Dear LSLA Membership,

“The Times They are A-Changing” – Bob Dylan

A lot has changed in just a year. If we rewind back the clock to April 2020, there was a lot of unknown. With shutdowns, the economy slowed down, the market dropped, and people reduced inventory and production not knowing what lied ahead. A year later the unknown is in the other direction. Demand is up, orders are up, people are busy. The question now, is how long will this continue? I have had numerous conversations on this with colleagues and a variety of guesses on times have been thrown out there.

It is good to see things busy for most of the lumber industry and in any type of building material. People I talk to in our industry along with friends who are in other aspects of building material all say they are busy, and material is a challenge to find. I have yet to find someone that says they can remember a time with such high demand on so many different products.

Hopefully, we can all ride the wave. With spring and summer happening, enjoy the busy times at work and in leisure. The Lake States area has had some nice spring weather, I hope everyone gets a chance to get out and find a summer activity they enjoy. This summer it looks like the lumber market may be as hot as the temperatures.
