    Description

    The structure of forest industry has experienced major changes over the last few years, both domestically and globally. Mills are closing, companies are merging, and forest products corporations are divesting their lands. The demand for smalldiameter trees in the southern United States has diminished largely due to the amount of wood fiber and wood products now available from other countries around the world. As a result, countries that have traditionally depended upon the southern United States for fiber (for example, Japan) are now being supplied by other global markets. In addition, rising costs associated with fuel, labor, equipment, and environmental regulations have all contributed to significant increases in stand establishment and management costs.
