US imports of Brazilian softwood lumber nearly tripled in the last 5 years…
…but still only account for 1.5% of total US softwood lumber imports (14.7% excluding Canada).
About 1/3 of the softwood lumber that the U.S. consumes is imported…
…most of which is from Canada (90%).
In 2019 the U.S. imported 34,069,175 cubic meters of softwood lumber (USDA). This is about 36.9% of what the U.S. consumes (which in 2018 was projected to be 92,300,000 cubic meters).
