Description

Pulpwood production in southern states during 1957 fell slightly below the 1956 level, thus reversing a strong, long-term upward trend. Total production amounted to 19,782,600 cords, a decrease of 562,300 cords, or 2.8 percent, from the 1956 record high. At the same time, the combined pulping capacity of southern mills climbed from 38,000 tons per day in 1956 to 41,000 tons in 1957 as new mills and expanded productive equipment in existing mills went into operation.
