    Description

    Results are reported for three studies that dealt with the influence of timber sale practices on competition for timber in the timber-dependent communities of Medford and Grant County An Oregon and those surrounding the Nezperce National Forest in Idaho. Results are also reported for a fourth study that examines how several firms managed their uncut volume under contract. Although the description of the various local economies is only indicative of others, these studies point out the fragile nature of the economies of timber-dependent communities where most jobs, wages, and government services depend on the forest products sector.
