A Survey of the Preservative Treated Wood Market in Oklahoma
Abstract:Retail lumberyards in Oklahoma were surveyed concerning their trade in treated wood products. Results indicate that an estimated producer price value of $39.3 million of treated dimension lumber, landscape timbers, fenceposts, poles, and plywood were sold by retail lumberyards in Oklahoma during 1996. Retail lumberyard managers report that farmers and ranchers are the most important consumer segment for treated wood product sales. Retailers also report that straightness, general appearance, and preservative retention level are the most important attributes that consumers desire in preservative treated wood products. South. J. Appl. For. 24(2):70-76.
