DescriptionThe central hardwood area is highly regarded both in this country and abroad for the high quality timber grown on both public and private lands. Buyers of standing timber and logs for lumber and veneer often look to this region first to meet their needs for raw materials. And these buyers have traditionally paid a lot more for quality timber than the usual market price for ordinary trees and logs. As worldwide supplies of quality timber continue to shrink, the demand for quality central hardwoods will grow. A strong potential demand coupled with rapidly growing young stands throughout the entire region, will provide abundant opportunities to encourage the production of high quality hardwoods for future harvests. The knowledge and technology are available-waiting to be put to use.
