DescriptionHardwood lumber production increased by nearly 1.8 billion board feet between 1986 and 1990 and decreased sharply in 1991. However, not all areas of the country experienced the same growth in hardwood lumber production during the 1980s. While lumber production in inland regions of the eastern United States and the west increased during the 1980s, lumber output in regions adjacent to the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts remained steady or declined. This paper examines changes in hardwood lumber production and the impact of changing domestic and international demands on these changes.
