Title: Alaska midgrade logs: supply and offshore demand.

Author: Flora, Donald F.; McGinnis, Wendy J.;

Date: 1989

Source: Res. Pap. PNW-RP-411. Portland, OR: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Research Station. 13 p

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: The outlook for shipments and prices of export logs from Alaska differs significantly by grade (quality class). For the majority lying in the middle of the value range, the trend of prices is projected to increase $200 per thousand board feet, or about 55 percent, by 2000. Shipments are expected to rise about 30 percent by 1995 and then subside about 10 percent. These conclusions are based on a country-by-country assessment of consuming and competing supply regions around the Pacific Rim, and assume currency exchange rates remain at 1987 levels and no inflation occurs.

Keywords: Markets (external), supply/demand (forest products), trade (Pacific Rim), log exports (Alaska), Alaska timber trade
