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 MIDNR surveyed all known primary wood-using mills and FIA processed and analyzed the survey responses. Mill responses from earlier TPO studies, or other ancillary data were used for any mills that did not respond to the 2014 TPO study. This update presents results from the 2014 survey with comparisons to the 2010 survey. Certain terms used in this report—retained, export, import, production, and receipts— have specialized meanings and relationships unique to the FIA program that surveys timber product output (Fig. 1). These and other definitions are on page 6 of this report. Supplemental data tables with further information can be found at https://doi.org/10.2737/FS-RU-169.
