Exporting Hardwood Pulp Chips: Economic Impacts to New Hampshire

Download Resource


This report (published circa 1995) is based on research that estimates the economic gains to rural New Hampshire communities and the State from increased utilization of surplus low grade logs and residue, resulting from the establishment of a potential wood chip export program. Direct economic benefits are measured for both public and private landowners, consulting foresters, wood harvesters, chipping and trucking operations, and activities at the Port of New Hampshire. Indirect, often called spin-off, economic benefits also are estimated for the State using a state level input-output model.
