Abstract

Between 1963 and 2003 northern hardwood lumber production more than doubled while production in the southern regions increased by less than 25 percent. In 1963 the major users of hardwood lumber were the furniture manufacturers located in the southeast region, and hardwood flooring producers located in the south central region. By contrast more than 60 percent of the kitchen cabinet and pallet industries were located in the northern region. Decreased production of flooring, increased concentration of the furniture industry in the southeast region, and increased production of pallets resulted in production plummeting in the south central region, while increasing in the northeast, north central, and southeast regions.
