Title: Profile 1999 : softwood sawmills in the United States and Canada

Author: Spelter, Henry.; McKeever, Tim.;

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: More than 1,200 sawmills produce the bulk of U.S. and Canadian softwood lumber. The maps and tables in this report show the location and size of these mills by State and Province. Analysis of timber inventories in relation to use shows a close correspondence between pricing and use intensity. In some Southern States, the intensity of use is approaching recent growth levels, but the adoption of more intensive management coupled with maturing of large areas of newly established forests should increase supply over the next two decades.
