Global softwood market: Steady shift in
softwood supply from natural to plantation forests

Wood extraction is one of the significant reasons for deforestation and
forest degradation. It has major implications on the environment, global
warming, biodiversity, ecosystem services, local societies, and
economies. To address this problem, the public and private sectors are
taking initiatives to cultivate plantation forests with highly
productive timber plantations.

“Softwood procured from plantation forest is of increased price
because of the stricter controls on harvest rate and higher harvest
costs. But, the marginal costs of softwood extracted from natural
forests is increasing as the low-cost softwood is cut first. This will
lead to an increase in the prices gradually and is expected to exceed
the cost of softwood plantation forests,” says a senior analyst at
Technavio for research on construction.
