Much has been written recently about the projected demand-supply imbalance for wood in the years ahead. Louder voices and greater pressures are being heard and felt for action to intensify timber management and harvest from a shrinking land base to meet urgent needs of a rapidly growing population. Foresters confront a monumental task in attempting to meet that demand for consumable forest products, especially in light of the intensifying competition for less tangible forest values.
