DescriptionThe South’s production of pulpwood declined from 67.0 million cords in 2008 to 61.2 million cords in 2009. Roundwood production declined by 2.3 million cords to 46.5 million cords and accounted for 76 percent of the South’s total pulpwood production. The use of wood residue dropped 3.6 million cords from 18.2 million cords in 2008 to 14.6 million cords in 2009. Georgia and Alabama led the South in total production, with 10.0 and 9.4 million cords, respectively. In 2009, 83 mills were operating and drawing wood from the 13 Southern States. Pulping capacity of southern mills increased from 124,679 tons per day in 2008 to 123,368 tons per day in 2009.
