    Canada became the largest market for primary product hardwood exports in 1987 after slipping to No. 3 in 1986. Preferences for fine hardwoods and limited Canadian supplies of species such as oak should assure continued strong demands for U.S. hardwoods. Another reason for continued strong demand is that some Canadian firms process U.S. lumber and logs for export. This paper brierfly discusses U.S. hardwood export markets, Canadian demands for U.S. hardwoods, and the U.S.-Canadian trade balance for all hardwood products. It also examines the sawtimber resources that support the export market.
