DescriptionIn 1998, the South's production of pulpwood declined 2 percent to 74.7 million cords. Roundwood production dropped to 52.7 million cords and accounted for 71 percent of the total pulpwood production. The use of wood residue increased to 21.9 million cords. Alabama leads the South in total production, number of mills, and pulping capacity. Currently, 103 mills are operating and drawing wood from the 13 Southern States. Southern mills' pulping capacity of 140,610 tons per day accounts for more than two-thirds of the Nation's total pulping capacity.
