"We are encouraged by the increase in lumber prices thus far this year, and expect continued momentum to drive improved earnings in 2016 compared to last year," said Mike Covey, chairman and CEO. "Our Wood Products segment returned to profitability in the 1Q despite downtime at our St. Maries, Idaho sawmill due to log shortages. We expect the higher lumber prices to carry through to sawlog prices in Idaho for the balance of the year," stated Mr. Covey.
