    Description

    In 1986, Southern pulpwood production increased 6 percent, to 60.6 million cords; roundwood production increased 9 percent, to 40.4 million cords; and wood residue production increased 2 percent, to 20.1 million cords. Since 1977, roundwood production has been increasing while wood residue production has leveled off. Hardwoods have been capturing a larger proportion of the total pulpwood production since 1977. Pulping capacity of the 105 pulpmills operating in 1986 totaled 119,825 tons per day.
