Chinese companies are looking for alternatives to American timber
At present, Chinese enterprises can absorb the increase in import tariffs of timber raw materials from the United States, but if tariffs are further raised, their business will face risks.
To avoid this situation, Chinese enterprises began to look for alternative sources and substitutes for American logs and sawmills.
China Customs data show that the main imports from the United States are softwood such as Citi pine, spruce and Chinese fir, but after careful inspection, it is found that these timber have no real price advantage compared with other sources. Major importers import spruce and fir from Douglas, Canada, New Zealand and Russia
