Timber Reports
Reports provided by Dr. Shaun Tanger, LSU AgCenter Extension Forest Economist: Timber Prices (quarterly); Timber Outlook (annual); Timber Impact (annual); Logging Economic Impact Study (annual).
Large forest trees are not always good candidates for preservation. They often have tall trunks and small, narrow canopies.
Protecting Shade Trees Around Your New Home
Many native trees usually can be saved and protected for valuable shade trees. Be sure to check the following points carefully before construction begins.

PDF version of Ecology and Management of Bark Beetles (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Scolytinae) in Southern Pine Forests.
Ecology and Management of Bark Beetles in Southern Pine Forests
Bark beetles (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Scolytinae) have been an important factor affecting pine forest production in the southern United States.Harvest in advance of, or salvage harvest after, bark beetle attack often is the favored management strategy. This strategy is not as appropriate in public forests managed for values provided by older, more vulnerable trees. High-value sites for cultural or endangered species protection may require use of more expensive management options.

Influences of Government Interventions on Increase Value-Added Wood Product Exports from Ghana
The findings of this research indicate that a reduction in air-dried lumber production in Ghana was significantly and negatively related to imposition of the air-dry levy but had no significant relationship with raw material levels. It was further observed that products that are processed further downstream, including rotary and plywood, could not be significantly affected by the strategies.
Is Stewardship Certification?
In our previous study, the NIPF of Louisiana indicated that Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry (LDAF) would be most acceptable to them as a certifying agency. A key question remained, however: Is the approach currently utilized by the LDAF to implement Stewardship an equivalent surrogate for certification? This research attempts to answer that question by comparing the Louisiana Forest Stewardship Program with the guidelines of four sustainable forest management standards.
Forest Fuel Reduction Survey Analysis: Forest Administrators.
Recent wild fires in various states have led foresters/firefighters/land managers to seriously investigate and execute the methods required to carry out a successful fuel reduction project. A survey was mailed to target these types of individuals nationwide. The analysis resulted in classifying mechanical and burn only operations based on the nature of projects.
Bridging the Rural/Urban Digital Divide.
In this study, we studied how the Rural/Urban Digital Divide could be bridged. We conclude that internet is becoming an invaluable tool for development. However, there is a challenge of how to ensure that all participants, industrialized and developing, urban and rural, rich and poor, and all races benefit from this technology. America should strive to turn the digital divide into digital opportunities to maintain economic growth.
