Abstract

This resource update provides an overview of timber product output (TPO) and use in Michigan based on questionnaires designed to determine the size and composition of the State's primary wood-using industry, its use of roundwood, and its generation and disposition of wood residues. This study was a cooperative effort between the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MI-DNR) and the Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) unit at the Northern Research Station (NRS) of the U.S. Forest Service. The MI-DNR surveys all known primary wood-using mills and FIA processes and analyzes the survey responses. This update presents results from the 2010 survey with comparisons to the 2008 survey. The data were accessed from the FIA database in September 2014. Certain terms used in this report--retained, export, import, production, and receipts--have special meanings and relationships unique to the FIA program that surveys timber product output.
