DescriptionIn 2000, the South’s production of pulpwood declined 6 percent to 66.6 million cords. Roundwood production dropped to 44.4 million cords and accounted for 67 percent of the total pulpwood production. The use of wood residue increased 2 percent to 22.3 million cords. Alabama continued to lead the South in total production, number of mills, and pulping capacity. In 2000, 98 mills were operating and drawing wood from the 13 Southern States. Southern mills’ pulping capacity of 130,337 tons per day accounted for more than two-thirds of the Nation’s total pulping capacity.
