Have Controls Reduced Log Exports in the Pacific Northwest?
Abstract:Patterns of U.S. softwood log exports are reviewed, along with salient features of restrictions on exports of logs from federal lands. Theoretical conditions under which restrictions will affect log exports are discussed, and an indirect test is made of the hypothesis that restrictions have no effect. Results suggest that restrictions have curtailed the volume of exports for higher quality logs only, leaving the lower and medium grades that constitute over 50 percent of U.S. softwood log exports unaffected.
