WRQ reports that domestic sawlog prices in Russia have gone up 25% in three years, despite higher log export tariffs; will they climb even higher now that Russia is a member of WTO?

Log costs for Russian sawmills did not fall as the Russian government intended when it implemented a 25 percent log export tariff in 2008. Instead, sawlog prices have increased by 24 percent the past three years and the supply of logs has been tight in 2012, as reported by the Wood Resource Quarterly.
