Data on the acreage of timberland that will be available for harvest in the future are crucial to the development of accurate national and regional timber supply and demand models. Improved supply projections are needed for new timber economy models, but biologically realistic supply models require detailed data about the future timberland area base for large regions. No comprehensive research is being done to meet the requirements of the new models. A planned, complex approach should be developed whereby information on land influences, behavior of landowners, and economics can be obtained.
