DescriptionThis report contains historical data of canvasses of primary wood-using plants conducted periodically in the 13 Southern States and presents changes in product output by year of survey species group, and product by thousand cubic feet and standard units. This data complements the Forest Inventory and Analysis periodic inventory of volume, growth, and removals from each State’s timberland. The canvasses were conducted to determine the amount and source of wood receipts and annual timber product drain by county and to determine interstate and cross-regional movement of industrial roundwood. Only primary wood-using mills were canvassed and in this report only Statewide totals by product are reported. Primary mills are those that process roundwood in log or bolt form or as chipped roundwood. Examples of industrial roundwood products are saw logs, pulpwood, veneer logs, poles, posts, and logs used for composite board products. Mills producing products from residues generated at primary or secondary processors were not canvassed. Trees chipped in the woods were included only if they were delivered to a primary domestic manufacturer.
