The Use of Rocky Mountain Species for Pulping
Abstract:In the nine states of the Rocky Mountain empire, some 375 million cords of potential pulpwood are growing on 35 million acres of commercial forest land. Many of the tree species included in this volume are quite acceptable for the manufacturing of paper and paper products although only small portions of the timber have been used for making pulp. As regional population and the national demand for paper products increase, the Rocky Mountain region will supply more of the nation's future needs for pulpwood and paper and paper products by development of local manufacturing plants.
