Title: Timber products output and timber harvests in Alaska: an addendum

Author: Brackley, Allen M.; Haynes, Richard W.

Date: 2008

Source: Research Note. PNW-RN-559. Portland, OR: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Research Station. 41 p.

Publication Series: Research Note (RN)

Description: Updated projections of demand for Alaska timber were published July 2006. Their application in land management planning for the Tongass National Forest has resulted in numerous questions and requests for clarification. This note discusses a broad range of these questions from the context of why we do projections, the model we used, the assumptions that determine the levels of timber harvest, our use of scenario planning, comments about how producers in Alaska compete with other North American producers, and the potential that some significant changes in southeast Alaska markets have changed the demand projections.

Keywords: National forest (Alaska), derived demand, forest sector models, timber harvests, softwood lumber.
