Hardwood Market Report's 9th Annual Statistical Analysis of the North American Hardwood Marketplace: 88-91

Abstract

Between 1984 and 1999 Eastern hardwood lumber production increased by nearly 3 billion board feet (Figure I). More amazingly, hardwood lumber production in the 1990's was 10 percent higher than the previous peak period of 1904 to 1913. Since 1999, the hardwood lumber industry has suffered through four years of declining production and demand before experiencing a small increase in 2004. However, the increases and decreases in Eastern hardwood lumber production have not been uniform among states and regions.
