Title: Hardwood timber supplies in the United States

Author: Bechtold, William A.; Sheffield, Raymond M.;

Date: 1991

Source: Tappi Journal: 111-116

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Long recognized for their wildlife, watershed, and aesthetic value, hardwoods are becoming increasingly important from the standpoint of timber production. The abundance of hardwood inventory volume, technological advances allowing greater substitution into softwood markets, and relatively low stumpage prices have generated a growing interest in increased utilization of the hardwood resource. The objective of this paper is to provide a broad overview of present and expected future hardwood timber supplies in the United States.
