DescriptionThe South's production of pulpwood increased from 64.0 million cords in 2005 to 64.7 million cords in 2006. Roundwood production increased 123,300 cords to 46.3 million cords and accounted for 72 percent of the total pulpwood production. The use of wood residue increased 3 percent to 18.3 million cords. Alabama led the South in total production at 10.5 million cords. In 2006, 87 mills were operating and drawing wood from the 13 Southern States. Pulping capacity of southern mills increased from 124,567 tons per day in 2005 to 125,093 tons per day, and still accounts for more than 70 percent of the Nation’s pulping capacity.
