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. West. J. Appl. For. 5(3):64-69, July 1990.
