Lumber price are up 6% year-over-year.

There were supply constraints over the last year, for example, sawmills cut production and inventory at the beginning of the pandemic, and the West Coast fires in 2020 damaged privately-owned timberland (and maybe again in 2021).
The supply constraints have eased somewhat.
And there was a huge surge in demand for lumber (demand remains strong).
