    Description

    In 2003, industrial roundwood output from North Carolina's forests totaled 776 million cubic feet, 2 percent more than in 2001. Mill byproducts generated from primary manufacturers increased four-tenths of 1 percent to 315 million cubic feet. Almost all plant residues were used primarily for fuel and fiber products. Saw logs were the leading roundwood product at 399 million cubic feet; pulpwood ranked second at 267 million cubic feet; veneer logs were third at 57 million cubic feet. The number of primary processing plants declined from 249 in 2001 to 235 in 2003. Total receipts increased 20.7 million cubic feet to 742 million cubic feet.
