Timber Production

California has about 40 million acres of forestland, whereas Oregon has 28.8 million acres and Washington has 23 million acres of forestland, yet both states are still out-producing California by considerable amounts.

"As recently as 30 years ago, we harvested enough trees in California to meet the wood products needs of our residents," said Donn Zea, President of the California Forest Products Commission. "Today, we meet less than 20 percent of the needs of our residents, even though we have abundant forests that are overgrown."

"In so many ways, California has led the nation in adopting environmentally friendly principles," Zea said. "However, implementing policies that prevent or discourage sustainable forestry leads to a shirking of our responsibility to meet our wood product needs locally."
