How Much Does it Really Cost to Make a Stick of Lumber?

Ever wonder what it really costs a lumber mill to produce a stick of lumber?  Russ Vaagen, Vice President of Vaagen Brothers Lumber, Inc. in Colville, WA, grew up in the lumber industry. He’s part of the second generation team that runs his family’s small log mill, and is considered an entrepreneurial leader in the lumber industry.  During the 2017 MSR Workshop, Vaagen will share his insight into the lumber industry and all the factors that influence the cost of producing dimensional lumber.  You don’t want to miss this very rare opportunity to get a candid look from an industry insider.
