DescriptionSouthern pulpwood production was 64.0 million cords in 2005, up from 63.8 million cords in 2004. Roundwood production declined 2 percent to 46.2 million cords in 2005 and accounted for 72 percent of the total pulpwood production. The use of wood residue increased 6 percent to 17.8 million cords. Alabama led the South in total production at 10.2 million cords. In 2005, 87 mills were operating and drawing wood from the 13 Southern States. Pulping capacity of southern mills declined from 125,182 tons per day in 2004 to 124,567 tons per day in 2005 but still accounted for more than 70 percent of the Nation’s pulping capacity.
