Detailed Information:
There does not exist enough wood to supply the ever growing appetite for pulp and paper. The pulp and paper industry no longer takes the time to debate this issue; even they accept that we all face a global wood fiber shortage. Pulp and paper is a 107 billion dollar industry, which accounts for about 85% of nationwide revenues for wood products, making it one of the nations top income generating industries. This ostensibly indestructible industry cannot be ignored; our global economy revolves around it and is reliant upon it. Confirmed by statistics gleaned from the 1998 North American Pulp.
