In 1999, the South's production of pulpwood declined 5 percent to 71.1 million cords. Roundwood production dropped to 49.2 million cords and accounted for 69 percent of the total pulpwood production. The use of wood residue remained stable at 21.9 million cords. Alabama continues to lead the South in total production, number of mills, and pulping capacity. Currently, 97 mills are operating and drawing wood from the 13 Southern States. Southern mills' pulping capacity of 134,418 tons per day accounts for more than two-thirds of the Nation's total pulping capacity.
