Trends in pulpwood production from roundwood and manufacturing residues; 1995 to 2001
NE Pulpwood production from roundwood and roundwood chips, 1997 and 2001 Ohio and West Virginia were the only two states where roundwood production increased. However, the increase in Ohio was 21% while the increase in West Virginia was 175% Maine accounted for over half the NE total of pulpwood production in both 1997 and 2001 at 51% and 54%, respectively The hardwood to softwood mix for the region increased slightly from 63% hardwood in 1997 to 66% hardwood in 2001 Of the states producing at least 100 thousand cords in 2001, West Virginia had the highest proportion of hardwoods at 87%. Vermont had the highest percentage of softwoods at 54%.
NE pulpwood production from manufacturing residues, 1997 and 2001 Pulpwood production from manufacturing residue was down 41% in 2001 from 1997 Two states, Ohio and New Hampshire, recorded increases in the use of manufacturing residues at 33% and 10%, respectively The hardwood proportion of manufacturing residues was up dramatically in 2001 from 1997 at 68% versus 53%, resp.
