More numbers that I heard today- Aspen pulp will decrease by 80,000 cords, down to 30,000 total. It will remain to be seen how this will affect our summer logging program.

Brazil; they ramped up production over the last 5-6 years and got SFI exemptions for clearing the rainforest by letting the cattle industry clear for pasture and then turning that pasture land into monoculture eucalyptus plantations.

As I understand the world of paper economics Brazil is having little impact on us. The size and weight of paper make shipping it internationally unprofitable. There will always be domestic paper mills but the onset of cell phones, e-books, online newspapers, etc. there is less use of the product. Tell your kids to put their phone down and buy a book!
