    Description

    Sawmill effectiveness is crucial to the growth and development of wood industries among locales, states, regions, and countries. Productivity ratios, structural factors, and other indicators of economic performance were used to measure the relative productive efficiency of the grade hardwood lumber industries in Kentucky, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. Despite undercapitalization, the industries' latent capacity and efficiency potential provide the base and make the prospect for socially desirable economic development a highly viable option in all three states.
