Industry Report - Industry Analysis Chapter

Businesses in the Timber Services industry manage timber tracts and sell the standing timber to downstream paper, pulp and wood manufacturers, but do not engage in logging operations to harvest timber themselves.

Therefore, the industry has benefited over the past five years from a recovering US housing market, with revenue expected to grow at an average annual rate of 2.8% to $989.6 million over the five years to 2016, including 4.0% growth projected in 2016 alone, underpinned by a recovery in lumber prices.
