    Description

    The North American Pulp And Paper (NAPAP) model and USDA POLYSYS agricultural policy analysis model were linked to project future market scenarios for pulpwood supply from agricultural short-rotation woody crops in the United States. Results suggest that pulpwood supply from fast- growing hybrid poplars and cottonwoods will become marginally economical but fairly limited in the next several decades. This supply could become significant under certain scenarios, such as reduced hardwood pulpwood supply from natural forests or limited future expansion in paper recycling. Woody crops might also be developed as feedstock for fuels or chemicals, but competitive development of hybrid poplars for such markets would require higher biomass feedstock values than current market values.
