Description: This update reports changes in the Nation's timber resource since the 1989 RPA timber assessment. The timber resource situation is analyzed to provide projections for future cost and availability of timber products to meet demands. Prospective trends in demands for and supplies of timber, and the factors that affect these trends are examined. These include changes in the land and timber resource base. Changing resource conditions that may lead to policy changes or that may represent opportunities for private or public investment also are identified. Market and resource trends are interpreted to provide an improved basis for managing the resource base.
Keywords: RPA, assessment, timber, projections, supply and demand, management alternatives
