DescriptionBecause the woodpulp industry is one of the mainstays of the forest economy of the Northeastern States, the U. S. Forest Service's Northeastern Forest Experiment Station has begun an annual survey of pulpwood production in the region. This is a report on the survey completed in 1963. The main purposes of these surveys are: (1) To determine the current magnitude of the pulpwood market. The survey will help pulpwood producers and pulpmill wood-procurement staffs to identify areas that are capable of producing large volumes of pulpwood. (2) To provide year-by-year data that can be used in analyzing trends so that the future of the pulpwood industry can be predicted with reasonable accuracy. This information should not only serve the pulpwood industry in making decisions about investment of capital and mill development; it should also be useful to public agencies concerned with the management of timber resources because it will provide the basis for projections of future demand and the basis for management decisions. (3) To provide data that can be used in evaluating the effects of the pulpwood harvest on the forest resource. This should help industry, landowners, and public agencies in carrying out orderly management of the timber resource to provide for timber supplies to fill future demands.
