Description: In the history of the Pacific Northwest, log production and conversion have been major economic activities. The long-term trends in timber harvesting have been upward, and most of the harvest has come from large old-growth forest inventories. National and international demands for timber have been a major element in putting upward pressure on log production levels. Economic factors and timber characteristics have largely determined the location and
magnitude of the timber harvest. In later years, landowner decisions regarding timber inventory levels and the rate of timber inventory reduction have constrained or reversed log production trends in local areas. As economic conditions have changed a broader spectrum of species has been included in the timber harvests.
