An econometric study of the short-term aspen pulpwood market in Wisconsin is described. The choice of variables entering the mathematical model, the method of parameter estimation, and the results of the analysis are discussed. Demand for aspen pulpwood is not affected by price and is shifted by changes in pulpmill capacity. Supply is affected by price and is shifted by the quantity sold in Wisconsin and imports during the preceding year. Forest Sci. 19:41-46.
