This report analyzes trends in wood fuel use within the city limits of Seattle and Spokane (Washington) and in the greater Portland (Oregon) metropolitan area. Short-term (through 1985) and long-term (through 2000) trend projections are presented. Short-term projections were made based on volumes of firewood removed from the nearest national forest(s) and average heating season nephelometer light scattering coefficient (Bscat), normalized for temperature and meteorological effects for two sites in the Portland areas and one site in Seattle. For long-term projections of wood fuel use, a state-of-the-art model was adapted and applied to simulate wood fuel use during 1970-2000. This model calibrated well against limited available data on actual wood use. The model projects increasing or decreasing wood fuel use based primarily upon the magnitude of potential fuel cost savings from heating with wood versus other fuels.
