Abstract:

Interest in utilizing California's forest-zone hardwoods for lumber and wood products has waxed and waned for more than 140 years. In spite of many unsuccessful ventures, strong interest is once again evident from landowners, processors, consumers, and policy makers. Their interest suggests a need to know past pitfalls, to recognize some realities of hardwood properties and related processing needs, and to build on knowledge gained from the past. A critical analysis of past hardwood practices and problems leads to 22 reasons for the failure of a sustained hardwood industry to develop. These include negative attitudes, higher logging and manufacturing costs, and numerous marketing problems. New developments such as changing attitudes, realistic view of costs, better processing techniques, new inventory and ecological information, marketing of secondary products, and development of problem solving organizations lead to guarded optimism that a successful hardwood industry in California can be realized.
