Projections of the Douglas-fir region forest economy indicate: (1) industrial harvest will decline over the next 20 years, in the range of 8 to 14% relative to current levels depending on the extent of reductions in public cut, but will rise in subsequent decades to near current levels; (2) nonindustrial lands can maintain present or higher levels with little reduction in timber inventory; (3) any private offset to a public harvest reduction will be modest and short-lived, and as a result large changes in public harvest will have significant impacts on the region's economy; (4) management intensification on private lands would have little impact on harvest potential in the next 3 decades; (5) minimum real stumpage price growth over the next 2 decades would be roughly 2.5% per year assuming no change in public harvest.

Each regional journal of applied forestry focuses on research, practice, and techniques targeted to foresters and allied professionals in specific regions of the United States and Canada. The Western Journal of Applied Forestry covers the western United States, including Alaska, and western Canada; WJAF will also consider manuscripts reporting research in northern Mexico that has potential application in the southwestern United States.
