    Description

    In 1996, the South's production of pulpwood decreased 6 percent to 68.5 million cords. Roundwood production decreased to 49.6 million cords and accounted for 72 percent of the total pulpwood production. The use of wood residue declined to 19.0 million cords. Alabama leads the South in total production, number of mills, and pulping capacity. Currently, 105 mills are operating and drawing wood from the 13 Southern States. Southern mills' pulping capacity of 137,160 tons per day accounts for more than two-thirds of the Nation's total pulping capacity.
