Pacific Northwest Resource Monitoring and Assessment analysts and partners conduct studies to estimate the use of roundwood by state. These studies are important to fully understand how forest products are used within the region. By incorporating forest inventory measurements with utilization studies, a complete picture of roundwood use by product, species, and geographic location is possible.
Forest Inventory and Analysis conducts Timber Products Output studies to estimate industrial and non-industrial uses of roundwood in a state. To estimate industrial uses of roundwood, all primary wood-using mills in a state are canvassed periodically.
