    Description

    The USDA Forest Service, Southern Forest Experiment Station's latest survey of the Midsouth veneer industry shows the softwood veneer industry continuing its dominance as the hardwood veneer industry has continued to decline. The number of softwood mills has stabilized after years of growth, while both commercial and container hardwood mills have decreased in number. Production and consumption of hardwood veneer logs have also decreased in response to the reduction in hardwood mills. Production and consumption of softwood veneer logs have both increased by half since 1972, even though softwood mill numbers have remained constant. Virtually all of the wood residues generated by the Midsouth veneer industry are now utilized, mainly as pulp chips and fuel.
