Title: Possible Demands for Eastern Hardwoods Resulting from Harvest Restrictions in the Pacific

Author: Wiedenbeck, Janice K.; Araman, Philip A.

Date: 1993

Source: Forest Products Journal. 43(10): 51-57.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Efforts to conserve the habitat of the northern spotted owl in the Pacific Northwest have placed softwood timber supplies under a great deal of pressure and driven up the price of softwood lumber. Hardwoods could meet some of the demand for products that have previously been manufactured from softwood species. Hardwood structural lumber may soon become an economically feasible alternative to softwood lumber. Oriented strandboard is likely to gain a greater share of the structural panel market. Opportunities also exist for treated hardwood lumber and treated hardwood shakes and shingles. Hardwoods might also be used to make increasing proportions of many secondary wood products such as moulding, millwork, and flooring.
