a Structural panel board includes plywood, waferboard, and oriented strand board (OSB) from 1983 to 2008. Before 1983, statistics refer to U.S. plywood production.

b Prior to 1982 lumber production data were only published for the Western region, which includes western Oregon and Washington, Inland region, and California redwood region.

c Structural panel production totals from 1977 to 2000 are different from those in Table 5 owing to different data sources.
