Title: Harvest of Plenty - Overview

Author: Araman, Philip A.; Tansey, John;

Date: 1991

Source: Timber Trade Journal. 356(5937): 1-2.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Trends in furniture fashion, consumer concerns about tropical hardwood usage and a concerted marketing drive by the American hardwood industry have each played their part in increasing the popularity of temperate hardwood in Europe in recent years. This supplement takes the reader on a trip through the hardwood producing regions of the U.S. and Canada, looking at the species and volumes available, forest management, market trends and kiln-drying. Kicking off with a comprehensive overview on U.S. hardwood forests, the supplement also includes information on exporting mills and UK suppliers. Articles on eastern and western Canada outline the small but thriving hardwood business north of the 49th parallel. Also, importantly, our selective directory of stockists provides UK contact details, complete with addresses and species information.
