    Description

    Results of the first fuelwood canvass of wood-using pulpmills in the Midsouth revealed that 46 pulpmills burned 12.5 million green tons of fuelwood in 1987. Mill residues were the primary form of fuelwood consumed. Bark comprised over half of the total consumption. In addition to mill residues, over 1 million green tons of roundwood were also burned as fuel. Fuelwood was consumed by pulpmills in all seven States of the region. Alabama alone accounted for one-third of the total consumption. Fuelwood consumption was concentrated in the larger pulpmills. Eleven states supplied fuelwood to the region's pulpmills.
