Description: The report by the Forest Service on the national timber situation, "Timber Trends in the United States," presents timber resource data by States and broad regional groups. The timber resources of the Pacific Northwest (the States of Oregon and Washington) are a vital part of this national picture. Although only 9 percent of the total commercial forest land area of the 50 States is located in this area, it contains 42 percent of all the softwood sawtimber and 35 percent of all sawtimber in the Nation. In 1963, the Pacific Northwest produced 41 percent of all the softwood lumber and 84 percent of all the softwood plywood manufactured in the United States. In 1962, it produced 16 percent of the total woodpulp in the Nation.
