This hasn't changes in 20 years. I remember a State Forestry type complaining that a lack of a grading service was limiting markets for local timber and also the small scale of local mills.

I don't think development is the big player here (it actually increases stumpage as lots are cleared or trimmed). More often bigger forests are under political pressure not to log (and many times in violation of their orignal gifts of deed etc.). Agriculture and Forestry in CT are really treated as hobby businesses or something whose primery purpose is to simulate the dirt poor visual landscape of the 17th century.
