Alabama Timber Industry Assessment

Walter Cartwright is the Assistant Director of the Alabama Forestry Commission's Forest Management Division in Montgomery, Alabama. Cartwright is one of the authors of Alabama's Timber Industry-Assessment & Primary Wood-Using Mills by Region, which contains the findings of a 2003 sample survey of all primary wood-using plants in Alabama. We've asked him to talk about the assessment and to comment on the map (see "Report 9/Figure 13" on p. 15) of the seventeen primary wood-using plants operating during 2003 - and what that means for Alabama's forest landowners.
