Farm Credit East Presents Northeast Forest Products Industry Outlook Webinar


ENFIELD, CONN. — Join Farm Credit East for a webinar on Tuesday, April 9, at 10 a.m. that will cover log, lumber, and biomass markets and other factors important for loggers, processors, and landowners in 2024.

2023 was a challenging year for wood products markets. Rising interest rates hampered demand while capacity ramped up across the south. With U.S. interest rates appearing to have stabilized, has the U.S. avoided a recession or is the second shoe about to drop? Join Paul Jannke, a forest industry expert with Forest Economic Advisors (FEA), as he presents his perspective on the region’s forest product markets and economic outlook.

This forest products industry webinar taking place on April 9 is free to attend. Connecticut Division of Forestry and Maine Board of Foresters Continuing Education Unit (CEU) credits have been approved. SAF credit has been applied for. Register at FarmCreditEast.com/Webinars. Contact Chris Laughton at (800) 562-2235 or Chris.Laughton@farmcrediteast.com for more information.
