Description: Although the pulp and paper industry of western Washington depends chiefly on logs for its wood supply, the use of pulpwood in cordwood lengths is steadily increasing. More than 75 percent of the 20 plants in the area are equipped to handle at least a part of their consumption in cordwood form. Many plants are remodeling their facilities to utilize additional wood supplies, and without exception greater dependence is placed upon cordwood.
