Abstract

With the increase of globalization, the North American hardwood industry is facing many challenges to remain competitive and sustainable, facing drastic changes in the areas of labor, land, manufacturing, markets and marketing, and supply chain. The hardwood industry is especially vulnerable, with the influx of foreign manufacturers and suppliers with greater natural resources and inexpensive labor pools. Specific and actionable research priorities need to be clearly defined to facilitate and encourage the creation of useful knowledge and practices to support the advance of the North American hardwood industry.
