Title: Projections of timber harvest in western Oregon and Washington by county, owner, forest type, and age class.

Author: Zhou, Xiaoping; Haynes, Richard W.; Barbour, R. James.

Date: 2005

Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)

Description: The Pacific Northwest forest resource is highly dynamic. Expected changes over the next 50 years will greatly challenge some current perceptions of resource managers and various stakeholders. This report describes the current and expected future timberland conditions of western Oregon and Washington and presents the results at the county level. About 50 percent of the timber removals in this region will come from 10 west-side counties, and Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.) Franco) will remain the major species removed. Forest industry will account for 50 percent of the total harvest in the Pacific Northwest West. Some inferences about the attributes of future timber and its utilization will be drawn from the projections at the county level over the next half century.

Keywords: Timber availability, forest resources, wood quality
