Description: At times in history, there have been concerns that demand for wood (timber) would be greater than the ability to supply it, but that concern has recently dissipated. The wood supply and demand situation has changed because of market transitions, economic downturns, and continued forest growth. This article provides a concise overview of this change as it relates to the United States, looking at nationwide trends in the pulp and paper sector and the solid wood and composite wood product sectors (lumber and wood panels) and also nationwide trends in timber growth, timber removals, and real prices for timber.

Keywords: Supply balance, consumption, forest products, statistics, United States, wood products, forest products industry, economic aspects, wood-pulp industry, marketing, pulpwood, timber, market surveys, paper industry, paperboard industry
