Abstract

An analysis of recent trends in eastern U.S. hardwood lumber production indicates that total output increased sharply between 1977 and 1991. The increase, however, was much more pronounced in the East's northern tier of states than in the southern. This paper first examines recent hardwood lumber usage trends and historic hardwood lumber production trends. Changes in hardwood lumber production over the last 15 years are then related to changes in national hardwood lumber demand and regional differences in timber attributes.
