As any homesteader will tell you, there's the satisfaction of knowing that you're a few steps closer to self-sufficiency when you're playing a vital role in producing and controlling the quality of much of your own food. Besides the fact that the flavor of your home-grown chicken and lamb beats anything the supermarket has to offer and your eggs are fresher than any you can buy in a carton, the food you produce on your homestead can cost you a lot less, too, in the long run. With today's food prices, the economics' of raising animals for meat, milk and eggs is constantly a big plus.

11 DANIELS, JEAN M. The rise and fall of the Pacific northwest log export market.
Portland, OR U. S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Research Station, 2005 Soft Cover Very Good 
General technical report PNW-GTR-624. 80 pages, charts, charts, pictorial wrappers, 8-1/2 by 11 inches, very good. Description: For decades, softwood log exports were an important component of international wood products trade from the Pacific Northwest (PNW) region of the United States. Log exports to the Pacific Rim began in earnest after the Columbus Day Storm of 1962 generated billions of board feet of salvaged timber. This market was maintained and expanded owing to Japan's demand for high-quality logs for its construction industry. Contentious debate surrounding disproportionate gains and losses to forest product market participants in the PNW (timber owners, mill owners, communities, and consumers) led to government intervention and restriction of volumes available for export. The debate ended and the market declined as a result of three factors: reductions in timber harvesting from PNW forests, changes in Asia's demand, and globalization of wood markets. These changes with implications for trade and timber market participants are discussed.

12 DEAL, ROBERT L. and, WHITE, SETH M. editors Understanding key issues of sustainable wood production in the Pacific Northwest
Portland, OR U. S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Research Station, 2005 Soft Cover Very Good 
General technical report PNW-GTR-626. 67 pages, illustrations, pictorial wrappers, 8-1/2 by 11 inches, very good. Abstract: "Researchers involved with the Pacific Northwest (PNW)`Research Station Sustainable Wood Production Initiative have outlined some of the barriers and opportunities for sustainable wood production in the region. Sustainable wood production is defined as the capacity of forests to produce wood, products, and services on a long-term basis and in the context of human activity and use. The collective findings of these papers suggest that in the future, the region's wood supply will primarily come from private land, and the barriers and opportunities related to sustainable wood production will have more to do with future markets, harvest potential, land use changes, and sustainable forestry options than with traditional sustained yield outputs. Private lands in the PNW should be able to sustain recent historical harvest levels over the next 50 years, but regional changes in sawmilling capacity and uncertain market conditions may affect wood production in the region. Public perceptions of forestry, land use changes, and alternative forestry options are also discussed. These papers present preliminary findings and proposals for future work designed to help us understand the key issues related to sustainable wood production."
