Roundwood production increased 5 percent to 44.3 million cords and accounted for 72 percent of the total pulpwood production. The use of wood residue dropped 22 percent to 17.0 million cords. Georgia led the South in total production at 9.7 million cords. In 2003, 91 mills were operating and drawing wood from the 13 Southern States. Southern mills’ pulping capacity increased from 127,110 tons per day in 2002 to 127,390 tons per day, and still accounts for more than 70 percent of the Nation’s pulping capacity.
