Why lumber is so expensive suddenly

I wasn’t Trump’s unwise import taxes — it started with the big recession in 
housing when the demand for new housing was flat and 30+ mills when out of 
business. Other disasters destroyed forests and planting was scaled back 
because there was no demand. The prediction was another recession in lumber 
during COVID but the opposite happened. Demand shot up. But it takes time to 
grow wood and build sawmills so it’s a game of catch up.
