Loblolly Pine Versus Cotton: A Comparison of Annual Cellulose Production Per Acre
Abstract:One of the great changes that has occurred during recent years in the cellulose utilizing industries has been the substitution of wood cellulose for cotton cellulose. Wood cellulose now competes with cotton cellulose in the manufacture of many cellulose products. The author shows that, on Arkansas soils, only moderately productive for cotton, loblolly pine produces about 4.5 times as much cellulose per acre as does cotton. Differences in processing costs, production costs, and markets also are discussed briefly.
