In this study, effective economic factors on the import of forest industry products were investigated. Data used in the time series analysis covered a period of 18 years from 1985 to 2002. Double-log linear function was used to analyze the import model. The imported forest industry products in Turkey were considered to be a function of domestic production value, domestic prices, national income per capita, lagged import value (t-1), exchange-rate (TL/$) and export values. The parameters were evaluated using a regression analysis. The results indicated that imported forest industry products in Turkey have largely been effected by national income per capita, domestic prices, export values and exchange-rate variables.
