Title: Non-industrial private forests: timber supply for an uncertain future.
Author: Alig, Ralph J.;

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication
Description: According to U.S. Forest Service estimates (in press), annual timber harvest volume in the United States will have to increase from the 18 billion cubic feet of 1986 to 27 billion cubic feet by 2040 to satisfy increasing demand (Figure 1). It's doubtful that public forest lands can provide much of this additional timber, primarily because of increasing calls for reduction of timber, harvest on national forests to accommodate other uses of the forests. Large forest industry companies manage their forests for timber production, but they do not own enough land to sustain the projected harvest increases.
