DescriptionSouthern pulpwood production has increased more than fourfold from 16.2 million cords in 1953 to 66.3 million cords in 1993. Softwood roundwood production more than doubled in the same time period; however, softwood production expressed as a proportion of the total production dramatically declined. In contrast, hardwood roundwood production and production from residues of all types substantially increased. The average daily pulping capacity of Southern mills climbed from 28,670 tons per day in 1953 to 132,992 tons per day in 1993. Southern mills accounted for more than two-thirds of the nation's total pulping capacity in 1993.
