    Description

    In 2003, roundwood output from Virginia’s forests decreased to 488 million cubic feet. Mill byproducts generated from primary manufacturers totaled 174 million cubic feet, 6 percent less than in 2001. Seventy-five percent of the plant residues were used primarily for fuel and fiber products. Saw logs were the leading roundwood product at 229 million cubic feet; pulpwood ranked second at 186 million cubic feet; composite panels were third at 54 million cubic feet. The number of primary processing plants decreased from 248 in 2001 to 234 in 2003. Total receipts remained stable at 492 million cubic feet.
