Abstract

The South’s production of pulpwood increased from 61.2 million cords in 2009 to 66.0 million cords in 2010. Roundwood production increased by 4.9 million cords to 51.4 million cords and accounted for 78 percent of the South’s total pulpwood production. The use of wood residue dropped < 1 percent to 14.6 million cords in 2010. Georgia and Alabama led the South in total production, with 11.4 and 10.2 million cords, respectively. In 2010, 82 mills were operating and drawing wood from the 13 Southern States. Pulping capacity of southern mills declined from 123,368 tons per day in 2009 to 123,076 tons per day in 2010.
