Description: A series of five studies conducted by the Virginia Tech Department of Wood Science and Forest Products, in collaboration with the USDA – Forest Service (Blacksburg, Virginia), have tracked activity in the U.S. wood pallet and container industry between 1992 and 2006. The studies determined trends in wood use and pallet production within the industry, both new and recovered. Each of the five studies attempted to include all U.S. companies that were primarily or secondarily involved in the production of pallets and/or containers. For a variety of reasons, not all firms provided data. Therefore, we estimated industry totals using the data collected and an independent measure of industry size.
