Slide 1

Monetary Subject Matter Meetings October 2002 Outlook for Forestry & Forest Products 2002+

Slide 2

Snapshot: Forest Industry ~ 12.4 to 12.7 Million sections of land in Timber 90% exclusive; New stock report will turn out in 3-4 months $117 Million to forest proprietors

Slide 3

Snapshot: KY Master Loggers No. of KML graduates: ~5,000 Number of Logging Co.: 1,481 KML Loggers/Firm: 2.52 Website:

Slide 4

Loggers in Insurance Squeeze 4 Types of Insurance overviewed: Worker's Comp, Equipment, Trucking and General Liability Biggest change: Equipment protection cost hopped ~ 20-half. ~ half decreasing deductibles or scope Some revealed most prominent increment was for Health Coverage.

Slide 5

Snapshot:Forest Products Industry 30,000 representatives 1 out of 9 assembling employments Annual finance of $602 Million Value of Forest Products made in KY: $4.5 - 5.3 Billion

Slide 6

Snapshot: Forest Industry ~ 530 Primary Industries (ex., Sawmills) ~ 540 Secondary Industries (ex., Pallet & Cabinet creators) Including Logging co's, ~ 2550 firms

Slide 7

Forest Products Outlook Stumpage Prices Primary Industries Secondary Industries Non-Timber Forest Products

Slide 8

Stumpage Prices Most Hardwood costs are about the same, no supported changes anticipated. Costs are down somewhat from a year ago: - 2% for HW Sawtimber (~ $18.50/ton) - 6% for HW Pulpwood (~ $5.00/ton)

Slide 10

Stumpage Trends Recent species inclines in sawtimber: Cherry and Walnut up; Hard Maple & Ash down Cabinet configuration market is heading back towards darker woods 3-4 year cycle

Slide 11

Stumpage Trends Hickory is slowly climbing because of Red Oak cost (loads of hickory in KY). High silica, dulls blades – yet potential substitute for ground surface (ex. Teak in Cuba) Yellow-poplar still solid for embellishment & millwork markets.

Slide 12

Stumpage Trends Soft maple has climbed ~ 1/3 the previous 2 years (Hard maple substitute, value touchy).

Slide 13

Stumpage Trends Not a considerable measure of data about Softwoods (ex., Pines) in Kentucky < 7% of the volume of standing timber in the state (not including Eastern red cedar). Inclines presumably like all the more southerly states, pulpwood going lower. "Mass of Wood" as manors develop, thinnings issue

Slide 15

Stumpage Trends Kentucky harvests ~ 15-25 Million board feet (or more) of Eastern red cedar every year. Generation goes into shavings, sheets and 3.5" x 3.5" posts that rival treated southern pine for letter drop posts. (half or a greater amount of generation!)

Slide 16

Hardwood Sawmills Losing little & moderate size plants, however expanding the volume of wood sawn Factors : Consolidation of factories Optimization of factories through innovation More resaws to change over cants all the more effectively

Slide 17

Hardwood Sawmills ~ 1200 Portable sawmills in Kentucky Ave. process life span is 5 to 6 years 30-40% of factories sold leave the state ~ 80% of proprietors get out, 20% purchase a greater factory Hard to bring home the bacon sawing just 1,000 load up feet/day!

Slide 18

Hardwood Sawmills Portable sawmills are useful for particular markets or high esteem included open doors, for example, Yellow-poplar siding Restoration siding for old structures Gunstock spaces, spalted blunder, groins Building designs

Slide 19

Hardwood Sawmills Likely open door for sawyers in Quarter-sawn amble showcase, yet most feel it's "a lot of inconvenience" Quartersawn (An) and Plainsawn (B) sheets cut from a log

Slide 20

Other Primary HW Products Boards & Staves: Consistent, great viewpoint Distillery business getting greater CA is thinking about KY barrels Poles Pine peeler shafts (SE KY) have a decent market, however lost much pine to bugs

Slide 21

Other Primary HW Products RR Crossties Hot Market! Enormous request. Costs up in most recent 6 months, however costs tend to run hot-and-cool, can't foresee

Slide 22

Other Primary HW Products Pallet Cants 4.5 Billion board feet of HW timber was utilized as a part of beds in 1995 (38% of aggregate U.S. HW blunder generation) 48% of all KY HW stumble goes into beds! Exceptionally aggressive market!

Slide 23

Other Primary HW Products Pallet Cants Demand is up, however the market cost has remained about the same! KY bed wood is greatly modest. ~10% less expensive than neighboring states! Ex., $245/MBF in KY versus $250/MBF in TN, $275/MBF in W. VA

Slide 24

Dry Kilns Good esteem added opportunity Companies have kept on including dry furnace limit, will probably keep on adding greater limit.

Slide 25

Secondary Hardwood Products Millwork (Residential & Commercial) Flooring Cabinets Furniture Pallets

Slide 26

Millwork Increasing generation in most recent 5 years More/bigger disintegrates have been included Yellow poplar supply is remarkable, best wood decision Outlook: V. great, renovating solid

Slide 27

Flooring Growing business sector, will keep on growing Preferred over covering Species utilized (all together of interest): Red oak White oak Hickory Hard maple

Slide 28

Cabinets Remodeling market, won't back off Very aggressive, heaps of little firms and a couple of huge ones (15-20+ workers) Most do well with custom cupboards Cheaper lines originating from abroad utilizing U.S. wood

Slide 29

Cabinets Entertainment Center market is anticipated to increment. Custom Built-in market is likewise anticipated to increment. Updates of more seasoned homes Maturing families mean diverse requests Transition to Flat-screen TVs

Slide 30

Hardwood Furniture Struggling! Chinese have made some real progress on the business with less expensive work. Higher-end organizations have moved out of NC, TN, VA ( with U.S. specialists!) to China. Creating great quality furniture abroad

Slide 31

Hardwood Furniture Still great open doors for furniture that is costly to dispatch. Ex., Entertainment Centers, BR furniture Designers can institutionalize parts like board size, improve generation, bring down expenses BUT – very little open door for most KY producers to take genuine preferred standpoint of this, too little

Slide 32

Pallets KY is a genuine constrain in the bed business Increasing number of bed factories & repair offices (could be either great or terrible … ?) SE KY beds are a ~little less expensive. Industry shakeout expected – however hasn't happened!

Slide 33

Pallets Trend towards more rented beds, institutionalization of determinations in the previous 5 years Large interest for custom items, however industry doesn't showcase itself that way "Product" = Low Profits! Industry needs better promoting.

Slide 34

Pallets Excess limit in KY, space to develop Kentucky bed plants are running at just 80% limit. 75% of different states report that bed factories keep running at 85-90% limit. KY upper hand is because of low wood cost (esp. for clients in Chicago, and so forth.)

Slide 35

Non-Timber Forest Products Ginseng, Goldenseal, Black/Blue Cohosh Mushrooms Native natural products (persimmon, pawpaw) Nuts (dark walnut, butternut, hazelnut) Christmas trees Fence posts Fuelwood

Slide 36

Ginseng & Medicinals Ginseng: 5 to 10 year development required $300 or better per pound of dry root Vandalism is most concerning issue. Goldenseal, Cohoshes: Lower esteem, however develop in shorter time Goldenseal ~ $20-50/pound of dry root Less than that for Cohoshes

Slide 37

Mushrooms Shiitake mushrooms are developed 3" to 8" distance across HW stems ~$5/pound for crisp shiitake discount Morels Mostly reaped, hard to oversee Value is ~ $30/pound new

Slide 38

Christmas Trees Marketable yield in 5 to 7 years Mostly Scots pine or white pine is developed in Kentucky. Near 14% ROI can be normal.
