DescriptionGrowing hardwood trees for pulpwood offers an opportunity to overcome the objections which woodland owners have to managing their timber. Pulpwood growing is a relatively short-term venture requiring minimum investments of time, capital, and technical know-how. Also, hardwood pulpwood is likely to have reliable local market outlets in southeastern Ohio for years to come. From 1960 to 1965 pulpwood production in the area has increased about 5 percent per year (Kingsley and Dickson 1967). The demand should continue to rise as pulpmills expand their productive capacities.
