Author: Shifley, Stephen R.; Sullivan, Neal;

Date: 2001

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: The volume of timber in the North Central Region of the Unites States (IN, IL, IA, MN, WI, MI) has more than doubled since 1950. Annual growth of growing stock on timberland is about 2.3 billion cubic feet (8.5 billion board feet). Removals from growing stock are about 1.1 billion cubic feet (3.4 billion board feet). However, the people who live in the region consume the equivalent of 3.4 billion cubic feet of timber products annually. When considering forest sustainability at local, regional, national and global scales it is also important to be aware of the balance among growth, removals and consumption at each of these scales.
