    The total industrial harvest in West Virginia in 1994 was more than 165 million cubic feet, a 38-percent increase since 1987. Sawlogs accounted for 75 percent of the total and pulpwood accounted for 28 percent. During this 7-year period sawlog production increased by 44 percent to 812 million board feet. Pulpwood production reached 348,000 cords of roundwood and 334,000 cords equivalents of residue chips. Oak species accounted for 52 percent of total sawlog production and yellow-poplar accounted for 24 percent of the combined sawlog veneer log harvest.
