    Description

    Southern forests yielded 37,075,355 cords of pulpwood in 1968, shattering the 1967 record by 10 percent (fig. 1 ) . Roundwood production, which declined slightly in 1967, rose 9 percent in 1968 to 29,500,697 cords. The use of plant residues for pulp climbed 17 percent to a record 7,574,658 cord-equivalents. About 75 percent of the 3.4 million cord increase was in pine-46 percent in roundwood, and 29 percent in residues (fig. 2). The rest of the increase was in hardwoods, mostly roundwood.
