Home Depot: Disorderly people having an exorcism in the lumber isle for the dead trees

A high price tag is not the only thing that can be found in the lumber aisles of Home Depot these days. 

Police were called to a Home Depot in Pennsylvania on Monday afternoon to stop “disorderly people having an exorcism” in the lumber aisle, according to a report by the New York Post.

The exorcism was for the dead trees. News of the incident began circulating around Facebook after the Dickson City Police Department posted a list of its Monday calls. 

“3:26pm Commerce Blvd. @ Home Depot for disorderly people having an exorcism in the lumber isle for the dead trees. They were escorted out of the building,” the post reads. 

As of Friday afternoon, the post had 254 comments and 593 shares. 

“They must have seen the price of lumber,” a commenter joked.  

“Does excoriated wood cost more?” another wrote.

How does a wood exorcism happen in 2021 and not a single person in Home Depot videoed this for our entertainment? I need answers.

But there may be some relief on the horizon for the industry. On June 15, Inman reported that lumber prices were coming down, falling below $1,000 per thousand board feet to $996.20 on futures for July delivery. This was the first time it fell below $1,000 since late March. 

“When we’re talking about the price and availability of lumber, we’re talking about housing affordability conditions,” Robert Dietz, chief economist at the National Association of Home Builders, told Insider back in May. “Those higher costs ultimately will dictate the amount of supply that’s available.”
