The Pulp-Wood Market in the United States

Nature volume 128, page 313 (22 August 1931) | Download Citation



UNDER the arresting headline “Russia seizes Canada's Market”, the Monetary Times of Toronto (Jan. 2, 1931) discusses the position of the pulp-wood market, a position which is not without interest for Europe. In 1924, under the heading “The Mistaken Idea that Canada has a Monopoly in Wood”, the Canadian Pulpwood Association in a memorandum to the Royal Commission on Pulpwood wrote: “Contrary to the prevailing idea, it must not be overlooked that if the American is forced to turn away from Canada for raw materials, he will find that we have not by any means a monopoly. For instance, wood from Russia, in large quantities, is already freely quoted, by substantial concerns, for delivery at Atlantic seaports. If the U.S. operator has the Canadian door shut in his face, he will naturally consider it to his interest to encourage forestry conservation and development intensively in the United States to ensure independence as far as possible.”
