    The availability of timber has become an issue across the South as supplies from other regions are constrained and as demand for timber continues to grow. Whiie any individual state or landowner will have a small impact on national timber supplies, the avaibility of local timber will have a profound effect on local industries. In Mississippi, for example, furniture manufacturing requires large-diameter hardwoods and when not available locally, this industry must find alternative sources of timber, alter production to reduce wood requirements, or, in the worse case, it will not be able to compete nationally.
