1996 : The field research to Korean and the Northwest of USA
(1) With the timber export restrictions of the timber-production countries, Japan has increased imports of timber processing products and Korea has diversified the log import origins. As for the imports of timber processing products of both countries, the wooden board and panel are increasing instead of lumber and plywood.
(2) The demands to forest recreation both in Japan and in Korea have been increasing for this decade.
(3) In the northwest of USA, the protection movement to salmon has just begun. On the other hand, the business of timber processing industries, which were made severe with the timber felling limitation policy, have been improved by the relaxation on the felling limitation.
1997 : The field research to the western part of Canada, the southern part of Korea, East-Kalimantan of Indonesia
(1) Log production level of Canada was stable but the quality has been deteriorating. The earning rates of forest related compani
es have reduced by the enforcement of Forest Management Act in British Colombia.
(2) In Japanese forestry regions, forestry management has been declining gradually. Forest owners intend to make special quality logs such as a polished fancy log and to extend cutting age.
(3) In Korea, incorporation forestry business of officials and privates is developed to make the effective use and the improvement of the function on forest resources. The citizen is using wood products such as the sycamore sap and the chestnut in various ways. The repulsion of Korean mass communication to the felling and forestry road is strong.
(4) Indonesia may start log export because the power of APKINDO has been declining under the counsel of IMF.Also, peoples in East-Kalimantan area were severely damaged as a result of the forest fire.
1998 : The field research to the southern part of USA and New Zealand
(1) Most of Southern yellow pine that was planted in the southern part of USA is coming cutting age and the production volume is increasing. Main targets of the supply are domestic market and the Caribbean Sea region. So, the supply to Japan and Korea will not increase conspicuously.
(2) The log production and export in NZ are increasing rapidly with a background of plentiful Radiata pine forest. NZ is promoting export to China and South-east Asian countries instead of Australia who will be able to provide timber for herself.
With the log export regulation policies and ban policies in the timber production countries, most of the forest related industries of Japan and Korea have been declining rapidly but the demand for forest recreaton is increasing. Less
