Germany: Beech Log Exports in August 2011
German Beech log exports to Denmark rose sharply in August 2011 compared to the reference month last year. The revitalized purchasing of a Danish parquet floor factory, reported by some log traders, is unlikely to explain the difference in this summer month. Shipments to China are declining. The slowdown is already noticeable. The high demand from Japan is not yet visible in the August figures.
