The purpose of this document is to report the results of an assessment of resource trends and conditions as we see them today. Analyses in the 1989 RPA Assessment pointed out issues that could influence the outlook for renewable resources in the United States. The emphasis in this assessment is on analysis of these issues. In addition, the supply/demand outlooks for the various renewable resources have been updated where new information suggested that the outlook might change based on the implications of the new information. The basic data on characteristics of forests and the area of forest land have been updated to 1992 from 1987.
