NYS Industrial Timber Harvest Production and Consumption Reports

Pile of sawdust

This report summarizes the estimated industrial timber harvest production level from New York's forests, the consumption level of New York's primary wood processors, and the flow of harvested wood to/from New York. The results are based on a survey of the primary wood using industry (e.g. - sawmills, veneer mills, pulp mills, wood energy plants, pole plants) in New York and other states and provinces to determine the annual level of harvest of New York's forests and to determine where raw materials harvested in New York are processed. Data collected include type, species and volume of products harvested.

Data was derived from several sources: 1) returned surveys; 2) reported summary data; 3) estimates based on known mill capacities. Estimates reported for logs are conservative due to difficulties associated with collecting or estimating relative small volumes of certain in-state and out of state/country consumption of wood harvested in New York.
