DescriptionThis study reports a decrease in pulpwood production by more than 18 percent in the 13 Northeastern states from 1997 to 2001. Pulp production comprised 6.1 million cords of roundwood and almost 1.7 million cords of wood fiber from mill residues. Consumption of pulpwood at mills in the Northeast declined about 7.5 percent during the same period, to 8.8 million cords. Harvesting of trees (roundwood) for pulp was most intense in Maine, where an average 16.6 ft3 of wood was harvested per acre of timberland in 2001.
