Oregon Dept. of Forestry Log Price Information

This site provides "pond values1" for important timber species in Oregon.  You can find pond values by year, quarter, region, species, and log diameter.  For south central Oregon (Klamath area) scroll down to Region 5 in the report.  There you will find pond values for ponderosa pine, lodgepole pine, Douglas-fir, incense cedar and sugar pine.

1Pond value is the value of logs delivered to the mill.  Historically logs were stored in a
mill's holding pond.  Thus, "pond value" is what the logs are worth floating in the mill's
pond.
