TTF Hardwood Market Webinar | 18 Nov

This year has seen major disruptions for the hardwood market.

European production has been impacted due to the pandemic, while demand for other timber products has risen dramatically with people across the continent going DIY crazy.

The US has faced a lot of challenges this year from the impact of Covid-19, to wildfires that have ravaged California. The upcoming 2020 US election could have a major impact on the global hardwood market, as well as trade with China, the US hardwood sector’s largest export market.

Join Michael Snow, the Executive Director of the American Hardwood Export Council (AHEC) and Maria Kiefer-Polz, Vice President for Hardwood of the European Organisation of the Sawmill Industry as they present an update on all these issues and more.

Attendees to the event will learn:

  • The state of the market across North America and Europe.
  • The impact of Covid-19 on the timber market across the globe.
  • The outlooks for 2021 in the hardwood sector, following on from the pandemic and US election.
  • If and when supply will recover to pre-pandemic levels.
