Although the 1990-91 recession has temporarily dampened the demand for hardwood lumber, the decade of the 1980s was a period of strong growth in the hardwood market. After experiencing a flat market in 1980 and a decline in 1982, the demand for hardwood lumber by both the domestic industry and the export market increased strongly—from 8 billion board feet in 1982 to 11.2 billion in 1989. Only in 1990 did this growth moderate and then fall slightly to 11.1 billion board feet. Indications are that the slower market for hardwood lumber continued through the third quarter of 1991.
