    Description

    In 2005, industrial roundwood output from South Carolina's forests totaled 645 million cubic feet, 13 percent more than in 2003. Mill byproducts generated from primary manufacturers increased 10 percent to 186 million cubic feet. Almost all plant residues were used primarily for fuel and fiber products. Pulpwood was the leading roundwood product at 318 million cubic feet; saw logs ranked second at 258 million cubic feet; veneer logs were third at 42 million cubic feet. The number of primary processing plants remained at 75 in 2005. Total receipts increased 8 percent to 582 million cubic feet.
