Knock on wood: An expected recovery in the construction markets will boost industry demand
Logging in the US
Logjam: Logging industry activities include felling trees and providing sawmills with sawlogs and wood pulp mills with wood chips and pulpwood. Because the majority of industry products are destined for the residential construction market, the Logging industry has faced difficult conditions since 2006. Faced with reduced demand from downstream residential construction and reduced remodeling activity, logging companies have experienced considerable revenue declines. Also, demand from paper manufacturing has been sliding. Demand conditions for the Logging industry, however, are projected to improve through 2016.
Logging companies buy and lease log-harvesting equipment and vehicles and use them to fell trees. The trees are then transported as sawlogs
to sawmills and pulp mills. The industry excludes breeding, planting or growing trees; as such, companies are classified under the Timber Services industry (IBISWorld industry report 11311). Companies that truck timber are categorized under Local Specialized Freight Trucking (IBISWorld industry report 48422).
