Yet all the lumber yards have a massive amount of stock. I know there's a bunch of housing construction going on, but that doesn't explain why the prices are so high when there's a surplus the way I have seen it.

Covid is the excuse. Its a bullshit excuse, but its what they want us to believe. This applies to nearly all materials including steel, wood, and other building materials like rock. The reality is that the world is in a panic and its the perfect time for companies to jack the prices around and see how bad they can screw the consumer. Earlier in the pandemic, people started with home improvements that created shortages, but that was a year ago and shortages are mostly caught up in the lumber side. Steel is a bit out of whack with much more of it involved in foreign trades.
