Eucalyptus woodpulp (eucapulp) emerged as a significant force in the world market for paper grade pulp approximately a decade ago, and since 1976, production has increased at a compound annual rate of growth exceeding 20%. Recently, the closure of a Wisconsin pulpmill was associated with imports of eucapulp, and fears that a rapid influx of eucapulp would destroy local pulpwood markets spread throughout the northern U.S. forestry community. Eucapulp is an ideal fiber furnish for production of tissue and printing and writing papers, both of which are mainstays of the pulp and paper industry in the North. Eucapulp represents a major structural shift in the world pulp and paper sector, and it is likely to have a continuing impact on the U.S. industry, especially in the North. However, imports of eucapulp and of papers made from eucapulp are expected to increase in the future at an evolutionary pace and not to pose an immediate threat to the regional industry. North. J. Appl. For. 7:158-163, December 1990.
