Abstract:
This resource update provides an overview of timber product output (TPO) and use in Wisconsin 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 Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WI-DNR) and the Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program at the Northern Research Station (NRS) of the USDA Forest Service. The WI-DNR surveyed all known primary wood-using mills and FIA processed and analyzed the survey responses. This update presents results from the 2013 survey with comparisons to the 2008 survey. The data were accessed from the FIA database in June 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 (Fig. 1). A complete set of inventory tables is available at https://doi.org/10.2737/FS-RU-125.
