DescriptionThe southern pulp and paper industry is again on the march. Practically as soon as the war was over several plants started expansion programs, and construction was started on a number of mills. Investigations and surveys now under way also indicate that additional new pulp and paper mills can be expected to locate in the South in the near Future. This is not news to you members of the industry, but it does point up the need for a review of the South's timber supply in order to see if annual yields of wood are large enough to meet present requirements and at the same time allow for some new plant capacity. Also, since the timber lands of the South are growing much less wood than they are capable of producing, it should be worthwhile to consider briefly some of the causes of low production and the yields that might be attainable under good forest practices.
