Wood trade is becoming truly international. Should France start modeling its forest sector in that global context? A panel of forest sector modelers and practitioners were invited to share their experience and suggest ways to model the french forest sector. An international forest sector model, the Global Forest Products Model, is presented by J. Buongiorno in its newest version in which the supply side has been further developed. This model in its simplest version has been used for a long time by FAO (A. Whittman). A. Baudin has been modeling the forest sector of the main wood products exporting countries in Europe. For France B. Cinotti provides the context to consider modelling the forestry sector and A. Barkaoui specified and estimates a simple supply/dmand model proving the possibiliy to developp such modelling with existing statistics.
