DescriptionIn 1991, roundwood output from South Carolina's forests totaled 508 million cubic feet, down 13 percent from 1989. Mill byproducts generated from primary processors declined an equal rate to 170 million cubic feet. Almost 100 percent of the residues were used, mostly for fuel and fiber products. Pulpwood remained the leading roundwood product at 250 million cubic feet; saw logs was second with 203 million cubic feet; veneer production was third at 52 million cubic feet. One hundred and eight mills were operating in 1991, nine fewer than in 1989.
