  New York State Wood Products Development Council Annual Report 1 New York is home to more forestland than any other state in the Northeast. 63% of the state’s land area is classified as forested and of the 19 million forested acres, million are classified as timberland, defined as forestland. Wood material has acquired great importance due to its short supply and increasing environmental awareness amongst users and manufacturers. However, its use as an engineering material requires consistent research developments in order to provide accurate responses to industrial processing problems.   Some people are just way ahead of their time. In the midth century, when most people thought of wood as an archaic and low-tech material, Egon Glesinger foresaw the revolutionary role it would play in our future, described in his book The Coming Age of Wood.   Wood is a renewable raw material whose environmental footprint can give wood product companies a competitive edge-but the demands from customers are also becoming more specific. The efficient communication of environmental performance both in marketing collateral and directly to customers can help create new business.

The look of wood is timeless, and Perennial Wood’s proprietary TruLast Technology improves the durability and longevity of real wood by transforming it at the molecular level. The company’s porch flooring line offers tongue-and-groove installation, and comes in three uncoated profiles: 3/4" by /8", 7/8" by /8", and 7/8" by /8. focused on success characteristics of small and medium size wood products companies. The first edition of the guide () was a cooperative project between the USDA Forest Service, Northeastern Area State and Private Forestry; and the University of Minnesota, Department of Bio-based Products, Forest Products Management Development Institute. New innovations in wood construction, podium design, mass timber and hybrid systems allow architects, engineers, designers and developers to build a wide range of projects. The business and design rationale for wood across building segments comes from its durability, flexibility, installation efficiency and ease of use. When the wood becomes available for harvest, plantation owners may have to be far more pro-active in the development of new wood markets. The Current Importance of Wood Everyone recognises our need for food, and hence the need for agriculture. In contrast, very few recognise the importance of wood in the global economy.

Here are our predictions for the wood products market in Demand. Housing starts are projected to be up 11% in , followed by another 11% increase in , although wood products producers rarely take third-party forecasts as gospel. If true, there should be a substantial increase in demand this year. Are you looking for forestry trade publications?
