One of the notable results
of the present high price of lumber in
Trees that will cut six inches are falling before the woodsmans axe, soft-wood and hardwood. The building operations of the state, in the face even of unprecedented high prices, were never so extensive, and every piece of timber finds a ready market.
The state is short several thousand dwelling houses, and the lean years of the war, when construction was stopped, have increased tremendously the demand for business and industrial building.

Real estate and rental agents are constantly prodding the owners to increased activity. There are large waiting lists of tenants for every office building and it is almost impossible to get an office of any kind, while desirable residential properties have not been on the market for a long time.
