Description: At the Southern Forest Experiment Station, we've been trying to extend the pulpwood resource by bringing more of each pine tree to the mill yard. The taproot of a 15- to 30-year-old southern pine weighs about 20% as much as the merchantable stem (Table I). Harvesting and pulping this wasted material would greatly increase pulpwood tonnage yield per acre. But is it feasible to do so?
