Value Adding to United States Hardwoods
Tony Pepper - 1993
My Gottstein Study Tour was aimed at obtaining as assessment of the United Stated hardwood market.
It was motivated by the inevitable changes taking place in the Australian market.
Much has been written of the increased quantities of domestic radiate pine becoming available in the market from plantations established during the 1960’s and 1970’s.
Plantation softwood have proven to be a very good substitute for hardwood in commodity applications.
