A quiet December and well-supplied sawmills caused a slight price decline in the Tyrolean leading assortment to € 96.51/m³ (-0.9% compared to the previous month). The demand for Pine rose due to seasonal reasons and price level is now clearly above the previous year (€ 69.97/m³). So far, only few contracts for 2012 were completed.
