SEATTLE - One of the few regions that experienced reductions in wood fiber costs in 2010 was the U.S. South, with 4Q prices being about 10 percent lower than in the first quarter, say analysts at Wood Resources International. Wood prices in the South were the lowest in all of North America in the fourth quarter. 

Global timber market reporting is included in the 52-­page quarterly publication Wood Resource Quarterly.which tracks sawlog, pulpwood, lumber and pellet prices and market developments in most key regions around the world.
