It’s the second consecutive year Oregon’s timber export numbers have risen.  Asian markets are demanding more from Oregon loggers.   Harvests were low at 2.75-billion board feet after the 2008 housing collapse.  But in 2010, the industry posted a gain, up 32% from last year. And in 2011, another gain of 32%.  The Oregon Forestry Department's top economist attributes the gains to an active export market to eastern Asia especially China; noting the U.S. housing market continues to be slow in recovery from the crash. But even with the increases, were far from the record high from 1988, when nearly five billion board feet was harvested. About 49% of Oregon is forested.  That's more than 30-million acres.
