Trends of wood use in the furniture and fixtures industry are examined. Wood consumption statistics from the 1972 Census of Manufactures are used to update prior Forest Service surveys, and separate estimates are made for 1977 consumption. A methodology for making up-to-date estimates of wood usage is also presented.
