Description: With more than 16 million acres of commercial timberland, Oregonâ€™s forest products industry is an important part of Oregonâ€™s economy and a major player in the Nationâ€™s wood products market. Despite declining production over the last decade, in 1998 Oregon was still the leading producer of softwood lumber and plywood in the United States, and the timber harvested in Oregon is the major supplier of the raw material used by Oregonâ€™s wood-processing mills. This report traces the flow of Oregonâ€™s 1998 timber harvest through the various primary wood-using industries and investigates the relations between the harvest and key economic variables such as the value of production, employment, and workersâ€™ earnings. Also included is a section on Oregonâ€™s secondary wood products industry.
Keywords: Wood products industry, timber harvest, economic effects, employment, labor income, sales value, Oregon
