The Integration of Forest Industries in the Southeastern United States
Abstract:Can the present supply of timber in the Southeast support the newly established pulp-mills, in addition to the existing naval-stores industry, the lumber industry, and the many other users of forest products? Will this added drain on the forests result in rapid depletion of the second-growth stands, or will sustained-yield management be adopted? Will each industry in its struggle for existence selfishly gain control of as much timber as possible and wastefully cut its own needs at the expense of other industries, or will integrated utilization solve the problem for all? These and similar question are being considered seriously by foresters, forest owners, industrialists, public officials, and others.
