The report furnishes estimates of industry-wide use ofvarious wood materials (i.e., solid hardwood, solid softwood,oriented strand board, and softwood plywood) in 1995 and, when possible, compare these figures to previously reported estimates for 1993 and 1992. In addition to this study, the Center for Forest Products Marketing and Management has conducted studies of recycling in the U.S. pallet industry, disposal of wood pallet material in municipal solid waste (MSW) and construction and demolition (C&D) landfills, and wood material use in the furniture industry.
