If you own timberland in Mississippi that has a hardwood component, you definitely should be interested in the furniture industry and the outlook for the use of wood in this market. The furniture industry provides a ready market for high quality hardwoods, as well as for lower quality hardwood timber; the outlook for the use of wood of both types is very favorable - particularly in the production of upholstered and non-upholstered furniture for household use.
