Description: This annual assessment of regional pulpwood production and receipts is based on a canvass of the pulpmills in the Northeast that use roundwood or wood residue as a basic raw material for paper, insulation board, and hardboard products. The report includes a discussion and tabular data on roundwood and manufacturing residues produced and received in 14 Northeastern States in 1982. This includes pulpwood production by state, county, and species group; pulpwood receipts from roundwood by state and species group; residue chip receipts by state and species group; production of whole-tree chips by state; and import and export of wood from Canada. Pulpwood production in 1982 was 8,452,200 cords, 2 percent more than 1981. This was a continuation of the record high levels of production begun in 1978. The production of manufacturing residues dropped for the third year in a row. Mills made up for this by increasing their use of roundwood, which reached an all-time high in 1982. Receipts of pulpwood at mills in the Northeast were 9 million cords for the fourth consecutive year. A list of woodpulp mills that receive northeastern pulpwood is included.
