Research and data on forest commodity supply chains and policy

The United States imported 161,179 cubic meters of tropical lumber in 2020. That’s compared to 244,515 m3 in the year prior. A drop of 34 percent.

Despite this steep drop in volume, tropical species still accounted for 53% of the total hardwood import market in the U.S. by value.
