DescriptionIn 1953 pulpwood production in the South amounted to 16,127,000 cords, 61 percent of the total 1953 receipts of domestic pulpwood at all mills in the United States. Southern production in 1953 was 10.7 percent more than in 1952 and 14.7 percent more than in 1951. The harvest of pine pulpwood was 14,147,600 cords, or 9.7 percent more than in 1952. Hardwood production, exclusive of dead chestnut, amounted to 1,918,300 cords, 13.4 percent more than in 1952. The trend is toward a gradual increase in the proportion of hardwood in the total pulpwood cut. Only 9 percent of the pulpwood cut in 1950 was hardwood; in 1953 hardwood amounted to 12 percent. These percents do not include dead chestnut used for pulp, Which totaled only 61,100 cords in 1953·
