For the past century, national assessments of supply-and-demand trends for timber have helped shape perceptions of future commodity consumption and have guided forest policy. Trends and projections since 1952 consistently have shown rising forest products consumption and changing sources of timber supplies. The current assessment envisions forest products consumption rising 42 percent by 2050 and marked shifts in the extent and location of domestic and imported supplies. Prospective shifts include a temporary near-term decline in US roundwood harvest and an increase in share of consumption from imports.
