Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)

Description: The special forest products industry has gained increasing attention, as timber harvest levels in the Pacific Northwest have declined, and has been heralded, at least by some, as a partial solution to the employment problems common throughout the rural areas of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana To date, relatively little work has been published on those portions of the industry located east of the Cascade Range Yet the east side produced about 48 percent of the total wild edible mushroom harvest (about 1 9 million pounds worth $118 million) during 1992 The region also accounts for all of the baby's breath harvested in the Pacific Northwest and has the potential to produce large quantities of other floral products It also seems to have the potential to become an important producer of other edibles and medicinal products, however, relatively little is known about this segment of the industry The following report provides overview of the special forest products industry east of the Cascade Range and evaluates its potential for expansion.

Keywords: special forest products, wild edible mushrooms, floral greens, Christmas greens, economics, marketing
