Despite the still subdued construction industry, spruce sawn logs are enjoying noticeable demand in Austria. According to the Chamber of Agriculture, damaged wood resulting from storms, snow and ice can be marketed without any problems. The prices have increased slightly regionally and are between € 85 and € 113 per FMO for spruce A/C 2b+ across Austria. When prices are stable, demand for larch usually exceeds supply. The marketing of pine varies regionally; while demand has increased somewhat in the north, sales in the south remain difficult. Oak and ash continue to be in high demand.
