    The data might be available to support the de-forestation/re-forestation claim but it seems to me that as societies become wealthier that there will be a higher demand for exotic or rare wood. David Brooks made the observation a few years ago in his book, “Bobos in Paradise” about Corian kitchen counters becoming the de facto choice among the wealthy and getting wealthy set. I don’t know what the carbon footprint is for Corian production but I imagine that it’s higher than the environmentally conscious would like to admit.
