Title: The Changing Hardwood Export Market and Research to Keep the U.S. Competitive

Author: Araman, Philip A.

Date: 1988

Source: Proceedings, Sixteenth Annual Hardwood Symposium of the Hardwood Research Council. pp. 168-177.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Primary hardwood processors face many interrelated market, product, processing, and resource problems generated by the increasing export market. In processing, yields and quality must be increased and costs must be reduced to stay competitive. Computer-aided and computer-controlled automated processing is also needed. The industry needs to keep its products competitive with other materials and with foreign products in an international marketplace. It also must deal with a vast array of resource problems accentuated by too much demand for a few species and too much low-grade material in our forests and at our mills. A research program has been designed to help primary hardwood processors remain competitive.
