We sent TTF National Hardwood Division Chair Ken Walsh a few questions to get his insights into the 2020 statistics and what they might mean for the future.

What were the key trends in 2020 for hardwoods? Having dipped sharply in Q2 due to the pandemic supplies recovered reasonably well in H2. That said global demand continues to severely restrict supply.

Are there any surprises for you in the data? Not really.

Have these trends continued into Q1/Q2 2021? Yes, supply from all areas remains very difficult.

What are your expectations across the coming year? We expect supply to remain difficult throughout 2021.
