Measuring the Unused Wood Resources of Washington
Abstract:The leavings of the forest industry in Washington accumulate at the rate of 210 million cubic feet every year. The quantity was revealed by the Washington Institute of Forest Products upon completion in 1951 of its state-wide inventory of unused wood. Knowledge of the locations and concentrations of the inexpensive resource is motivating expansion of the state's wood-using industries. Improved handling methods and favorable markets are encouraging the utilization of a material that in the past would not pay its way out of the woods. A description of the methods and standards used by the Institute to "cruise" the leftovers is prepared here to assist other foresters in making similar inventories in their own areas. Additional information may be obtained from the Washington Institute of Forest Products, 303 Anderson Hall, University of Washington, Seattle 5.
