August 28, 2015

BATON ROUGE – “How Effective is the United States-Canada Softwood Lumber Agreement? An Econometric Study,” a paper published by LSU Economics Professor Carter Hill, LSU Renewable Natural Resources Professor Sun Joseph Chang and Rajan Parajuli, graduate research assistant, was recently accepted to Forest Science.

The paper focuses on the ongoing debate regarding the Softwood Lumber Agreement, which expires in October 2015. Their study provides empirical data and facts that should be considered if the U.S. were to pursue another softwood lumber agreement.

Both Professors Hill and Chang stated, “The acceptance and soon, publication of the article by ForestScience, the leading publication in forestry-related studies, recognizes the quality of research and the importance, as well as the potential impact, of the results reported in the study.”
