Oak prices were slowly stabilizing; the small decrease noticed since February was due to a need of cash rather than a fall in demand which became more stable.

Beech was still headed downwards; it might have seemed that it had hit the floor previously, but it was not the case yet. Foresters would soon need to give the logs for free, sawn beech not being worth more than the sawing cost.

In a very quiet market, ash remained relatively stable.

Cherry and sycamore maple prices were insignificant as the demand was extremely weak and very few transactions still took place.

Chestnut prices fell since there was no demand.
