Abstract

In 2004, the South's production of pulpwood increased from 61.3 million cords in 2003 to 63.8 million cords. Roundwood production increased 6 percent to 47.0 million cords and accounted for 74 percent of the total pulpwood production. The use of wood residue declined 1 percent to 16.8 million cords. Alabama led the South in total production at 10.2 million cords. In 2004, 89 mills were operating and drawing wood from the 13 Southern States. Pulping capacity of Southern mills declined from 127,390 tons per day in 2003 to 125,182 tons per day, and still accounts for more than 70 percent of the Nation's pulping capacity.
