The Southeast Timber Supply: How will it be Affected by Changing Forestry in South America, Canada, and the Northeast?
Abstract:Those responsible for forest investments in the southeastern U.S. are interested in how much and how soon timber produced in other regions--particularly the fast-growth forests in tropical and subtropical areas--will be competitive. The author presents his views on both present and potential effects on the Southeast's timber supply of evolving forestry in South America, Canada, and the northeastern U.S. He concludes that the southern pine region will remain a major supplier of timber and even increase its share of the world market in the immediate future.
