Description:

  • Mississippi forests supplied more than 677 million cubic feet of roundwood to forest industries in 1976. This is an increase of 21 percent since 1972 and an increase of 69 percent over the 1966 harvest.
  • Softwoods, mainly pine, made up over 71 percent of the total.
  • Saw logs and pulpwood were the major products, accounting for 85 percent of the harvest (Fig. 1). Veneer logs added 11 percent. Poles, piling, and particle board made up most of the remainder.
  • A total of 293 primary wood-using plants were in operation.
these are among the major findings of a canvass of all primary forest industries in Mississippi by personnel of the Mississippi Forestry Commission. Data were compiled and analyzed by the Renewable Resource Evaluation Unit of the Southern Forest Experiment Station.
