Where do you think lumber, furniture, flooring, paper, cardboard boxes, tissue, and toilet paper come from?

A quantitative review of the North American forest products industry

(with a new interactive dashboard and Sankey diagram)

This white paper and a new interactive dashboard with a Sankey diagram provides a quantitative view of the US and Canadian forest products sector.

There are about 1850 operating mills in north America that use wood as their primary input to produce products that many of us take for granted. 

These products produced from trees are commonplace in the forms of packaging and shipping boxes, lumber and other wood-based construction materials, flooring, furniture, tissue, and many other less obvious uses including the production of wood pellets. 

As the white paper and dashboard show, the export pellet sector uses only about 3.2% of the primary harvest directly from the forest. 

The rest goes to lumber, paper, etc.


FutureMetrics is the leading full service consultancy in the pellet fuel sector.

The white paper and dashboard are free and can be found at the FutureMetrics website.
