Why we’re raising our prices
Unfortunately, the timber market remains very much unchanged. The price of timber is continuing to fluctuate as a result of the ongoing increase in worldwide demand. As we have mentioned previously in these announcements, other markets around the world are willing to pay higher prices for timber products which results in the UK market having to pay more for the reduced amount of supply left available.

If you’d like to talk to us about anything we’ve included within this letter, please get in touch with your local branch. We look forward to continuing to work with you.
