Description: Current conditions in Alaska timber markets are reviewed relative to the past two decades. Major issues in the outlook for Alaska timber markets are considered. Recent studies are used to develop projections of Alaska timber products output, timber harvest, and timber harvest by owner. The assumptions these projections depend on include the level of harvest on Native lands and consumption of sawn wood in Japan. Total harvest in Alaska is expected to average 660 million board feet per year during the early 1990s, and 545 million feet per year between 1995 and 2005. Harvest from National Forests necessary for total supply to meet expected demand will remain roughly constant at 400 million board feet per year from 1990 to 2010.
Keywords: Alaska, international trade, log exports, supply and demand
