Abstract:
This resource update provides an overview of timber product output (TPO) and use in North Dakota based on questionnaires designed to determine the size and composition of the State's primary wood-using industry, its use of roundwood, and its generation and disposition of wood residues. This study was a cooperative effort between the North Dakota Forest Service (NDFS) and the Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program at the Northern Research Station (NRS) of the U.S. Forest Service. The NDFS surveys all known primary woodusing mills and FIA processes and analyzes the survey responses. This update presents results from the 2014 survey with comparisons to the 2009 survey. The data were accessed from the FIA database in November 2016. Certain terms used in this report-retained, export, import, production, and receipts-have specialized meanings and relationships unique to the FIA program that surveys timber product output.
