AHEC unveils interactive map showing US Hardwood Forests' volumes, growth and removals

The American Hardwood Export Council (AHEC) has launched an interactive map showing hardwood forests' growth, removal and volume in the United States.

The map displays data collected by the U.S. Forest Service on a national, state and county level providing regularly updated information for most of the main commercial American hardwood species.

“It’s a dynamic tool that accurately reflects what’s going on in the forest and it will dramatically change the way we promote the sustainability of American hardwoods,” said Mike Snow, AHEC executive director.

It’s a new way for communicating environmental credentials and will make it easier for architects, designers and wood industries to demonstrate the sustainability of the timber they use.”
