Boise Cascade's Imports of Wood Products

(April 1999 through March 2000)

compiled by George Draffan, Public Information Network

SCOPE OF REPORT & SOURCE OF DATA:

This report summarizes an analysis of Boise Cascade's imports of wood products as recorded in the PIERS database for the 12 months April 1999 through March 2000.

NOTE ON IMPORTS FROM CANADA:

This report includes only marine imports, and does not include shipments into the U.S. by rail or truck.

Since more than 75% of U.S. wood imports from Canada arrive by rail or truck, the Canadian imports shown here are a small percentage of the total.
