Forest land: In the West, paid harvest volumes were moderately lower than in the 1st quarter due to unseasonably wet weather. Domestic sales realizations were moderately lower and unit log and haul costs were significantly higher as harvesting operations shifted to higher elevation units. Export sales realizations were moderately higher and export sales volumes were significantly higher, driven by strong demand in Japan. In the South, sawlog and fiber log sales realizations were slightly higher, and custom harvest volumes increased moderately. Unit log and transport costs were much higher, mainly due to fuel costs. Forestry and road costs in the west and south were seasonally higher.

Wood products: Lumber and oriented strand board sales realizations were down 25% and 14%, respectively, from first quarter averages. Lumber sales volumes were significantly higher due to seasonal inventory reductions and improved production, while manufacturing unit costs and log costs increased slightly. Sales volumes of oriented strand board increased slightly. Unit manufacturing costs were moderately higher and fiber costs were comparable. Sales realizations and production volumes for most engineered wood products were significantly higher. This was partially offset by significantly higher raw material costs, primarily for oriented strand board stock. Realizations of distribution products were significantly lower.
