DescriptionThe South’s production of pulpwood declined from 65.5 million cords in 2010 to 62.7 million cords in 2011. Roundwood production decreased by 878,000 cords to 50.1 million cords and accounted for 80 percent of the South’s total pulpwood production. The use of wood residue dropped 14 percent to 12.6 million cords in 2011. Georgia and Alabama led the South in total production, with 10.6 and 9.9 million cords, respectively. In 2011, 81 mills were operating and drawing wood from the 13 Southern States. Pulping capacity of Southern mills declined from 123,076 tons per day in 2010 to 122,218 tons per day in 2011.
