My point, is that hardwood, as it is typically defined (oak, maple, beech, walnut, cherry, poplar, etc), production in the Appalachian mountain chain dominates the world market.

No, that is not how we typically define hardwoods. If you limit your definition of hardwoods to woods that grow in your own backyard, then what you are saying is 80% of the trade in Appalachian hardwoods comes from Appalachia. An extremely parochial perspective.
