Description: For the forestry and logging, wood products, paper products, and wood furniture industries, in 2002, of a total $72.5 billion (2005$) in wages, profits and taxes, 80% went to wages, 18% to profits and 2% to taxes; 43% was provided by paper products industries, 35% by wood products industries, 17% by wood furniture industries and 5% by forestry and logging. Revenues to landowners from stumpage sales in 1997 were $22 billion (2005$) of which 5% went to National Forests, 6% went to other public lands, 33% went to industry land owners, and 56% went to other private landowners. Since 1997 much of the industry forest land has been sold to Timber Management Organizations and Real Estate Investment Trusts, so the share of stumpage revenues going to industry land owners has probably declined. Of 18 million acres of forest land on Indian reservations in the U.S., 5.7 million acres are commercial timberland. In 2001 these lands provided $95 million of revenue (2005$) mostly from industrial timber harvest or 0.4% of the U.S. total 1997 stumpage revenue of $22 billion (2005$). The Northwest region accounted for over 70 percent of the timber volume and more than 85 percent of revenue, followed by the Lake States at 13.5 percent of the timber volume and over 7 percent of revenue. No trend information is available on revenues to various groups.
