DescriptionMany markets for hardwood lumber have experienced growth in recent years. Eastern and Central hardwood lumber production reached an estimated 11.2 billion board feet in 1988, a twenty year high. Wood furniture, flooring, and exports have also experienced growth in the last ten years. During the same period, annual growth on eastern hardwood forests has exceeded annual removals. However, species and grade compositions do not match market needs. Differences in species composition can be mitigated by species substitution. The relatively low quality of much of the resource is a greater problem.
