The South’s production of pulpwood increased from 65.7 million cords in 2007 to 67.0 million cords in 2008. Roundwood production increased by 1.2 million cords to 48.8 million cords and accounted for 73 percent of the South’s total pulpwood production. The use of wood residue remained stable at 18.2 million cords. Georgia led the South in total production, with 11.6 million cords. In 2008, 86 mills were operating and drawing wood from the 13 Southern States. Pulping capacity of southern mills declined from 125,565 tons per day in 2007 to 124,679 tons per day in 2008, but still accounted for >70 percent of the Nation’s pulping capacity.
