The organization and cost efficiency in wood utilization of the southern Appalachian hardwood-using industry was studied. A spatial equilibrium type of analysis was made, adapting the transportation problem to consider multi-stage integrated industrial structures. Forecasts of least-cost organization of the industry under a variety of future economic conditions were made. Concentration and integration of drying and dimension manufacturing in the Appalachian areas is supported by the results of this study. Forest Sci. 18:247-260.
