The Binational Softwood Lumber Council (BSLC) engaged the University of Washington’s Center for International Trade in Forest Products (CINTRAFOR) and the Natural Resource Spatial Informatics Group (NRSIG) to research softwood timber supply in the United States considering the growing use of wood products, including mass timber. Using USDA Forest Service Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) data, incremental U.S. softwood timber harvests were projected to supply what would be needed for the highest volume scenario of mass timber and light framing consumption in 2035.
