Abstract: The Forest and Range Renewable Resources Planning Act of 1974 and the Forest and Rangeland Renewable Resources Research Act of 1978 require the Forest Service to evaluate trends in the use of logs and wood chips, to forecast anticipated levels of logs and wood chips, and to analyze changes in the harvest of these resources from National Forest System lands. To collect this information, Forest Service personnel use two questionnaires, which respondents return in self-addressed, postage-paid envelopes. Pulpwood Received Questionnaire: Forest Service personnel use this questionnaire to collect and evaluate information from pulp mills in order to monitor the volume, types, species, sources, and prices of timber products harvested throughout the Nation. The data collected will be used to provide essential information about the current use of the Nation’s timber resources for pulpwood industrial products and is not available from other sources. Logs and Other Roundwood Received: This questionnaire is used by Forest Service personnel to collect and evaluate information from primary wood-using mills, including small, parttime mills, as well as large corporate entities. Primary wood-using mills are facilities that use harvested wood in log or chip form, such as sawlogs, veneer logs, pulpwood, and pulp chips, to manufacture a secondary product, such as lumber or paper.
