    O ne of the two types of mills where timber goes after being harvested is a pulp and paper mill, like this
one operated by Graphic Packaging in Macon. Here,
younger and smaller-diameter trees are turned into a wide array of end-products through a two-step process. First, the harvested timber is turned into large rolls of raw paper (like the one pictured) through the pulping process. These large rolls are then processed in a number of ways to specifically create the paper containers, cardboard boxes for cereal and many other paper products we use daily. | 25
