A New Look at the Canadian Market for U.S. Hardwood Lumber
Abstract:Producers of U.S. hardwoods have aggressively expanded into international markets. This expansion has increased the requirements for information on specific international markets. One such export market is Canada. The authors conducted an extensive survey of Canadian hardwood lumber buyers in order to augment existing information on this market. The results indicate that Canadians purchase a wide variety of U.S. hardwood lumber species; the primary species are red oak, hard maple, and white oak, in declining order. All grades of U.S. hardwood lumber are purchased; approximately half of the lumber was graded FAS & IF, and one-third was graded No. 2 Common or below. The U.S. accounted for 98% of the hardwood lumber imported by Canada in 1990; South American countries were the next largest source. North. J. Appl. For. 10(3): 128-131.
