The rapid expansion of the pulp and paper industry in the South has created a market for small-sized pine timber. Pulpwood requirements cannot be met entirely from company-owned or controlled lands. A large portion of the supply will have to come from privately owned forests, particularly farm woodlands. The author discusses the pulpwood problem in the South, as it affects the farm woodland owner, and the necessary steps to see that these farm woodlands are kept productive.
