    Description

    Time series data frequently used in Forest Service studies of wood products consumption have been stored in a data retrieval system on the computer of the University of Wisconsin. The data cover activity in wood processing from forest to end use. Prices and costs at succeeding stages, historical usage, production rates, and other relevant data to wood use analysis were compiled. The system is available on-line and may be accessed directly or the data may be obtained in printed form by interested users.
