STEADY MARKET FOi:

“Federal and state forestry of

incentive for constructive forest

for forest products” said

Pro press in the forest industry has a definite effect on the
economy of the Pacific Northwest. More jobs are created as
new plants are built to manufacture new products.

Introduction of Silvatek Versabord is a good example. It
resulted from Weyerhaeuser developments in refining an
existing particle board process and adapting it to Oregon and
Washington tree species. This relatively new Weyerhaeuser
product required construction of a plant at Coos Bay, Oregon
and employment of a number of local people.
Weyerhaeuser scientists, technicians and market specialists
constantly search for new and useful products to manufacture.
As such products are introduced, they also will bring about
more employment and addition of new plant facilities.
The resulting payrolls and capital expenditures boost local
business volume and lend support to local government through
taxes...adding stability to our regional economy.
