Pitfalls in Interpreting Lumber Consumption Trends
Abstract:The trend in lumber consumption has worried many foresters. Some have even questioned the necessity of many forestry activities because they were afraid that eventually steel and concrete would so reduce the demand of lumber that a large surplus of this commodity would result. It is reassuring, therefore, to read that lumber consumption trend figures have been misinterpreted widely and that the actual per capita consumption of lumber is about the same as it was thirty years ago. There is a possibility of another upward trend in the lumber consumption curve with the probability of an eventual levelling off.
