After two months of expansion the value of Canadian imports of tropical sawnwood slipped to $1.40 million in September. The September year-to-date value of imports was still significantly higher than in September 2015, ITTO reported.

Imports of all tropical species (those that are recorded individually) fell in September. Canadian sapelli sawnwood imports were worth $212,953 in September, down one third from August.

Only a small volume of mahogany was imported into Canada in September ($2,604), and meranti imports fell by more than half to $55,313.

A few countries increased shipments to Canada in September despite the overall decline. Imports from Brazil were worth $188,085 (+17%). China had supplied some tropical hardwood in the past but in September only $58,981 worth of hardwood sawnwood was shipped to Canada.
