    In 1963 approximately 30 percent of the dry weight of above- and below-ground parts of southern pine trees ended as dry-surfaced lumber or paper; the remaining 70 percent was largely unused. By 1980, computer-controlled chipping headrigs, thin-kerf saws, lamination of lumber from rotary-cut veneer, high-yield pulping processes, and more intensive use of roots, bark, and tops will likely double the yield of lumber, paper, bark products, and reconstituted board to 60 percent of the dry weight of above and below-ground tree parts.
