Title: Southern forests as a source of pulpwood

Author: Cruikshank, J.W.;

Date: 1947

Source: Forest Survey Release No. 22. Asheville, NC: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Southeastern Forest Experiment Station. 14 p.

Publication Series: Forest Survey Release

Description: The South, as discussed here, includes the coastal states extending from the Potomac south to Florida and west to the plains of Texas, plus the inland states of Tennessee, Arkansas, and Oklahoma. Within its boundaries lie almost the entire commercial range of the southern yellow pines and a large part of the Nation's supply of hardwoods. It contains 183 million acres, or 40 percent, of the commercial forest land in the United States and 1.9 billion cords, or 28 percent, of the timber. Practically all is easily accessible by water, rail, or good roads. Even more important from the long-range view, its soils and climate favor rapid timber growth, and year-round logging seasons facilitate timber harvesting.
