The Korean Market for Temperate Hardwoods: A Comparison of Trade Statistics
Abstract:The Republic of Korea (Korea) is the second largest Asian market for temperate hardwood log and lumber exports from the United States and the subject of intense interest by exporters. The following paper summarizes recent trends in the Korean temperate hardwood market and explores the major problems encountered in attempting to reconcile Korean and U.S. trade statistics for these products. Major problems identified include: known reporting errors, apparent recording errors, shipping time, misclassification and aggregation errors, and the possible resale of log and lumber products on the high seas. Discrepancies in Korean/Canadian trade statistics for temperate hardwoods are also presented and discussed. North. J. Appl. For. 13(1):59-67.
