DescriptionIn 2005, industrial roundwood output from Georgia's forests totaled 1.17 billion cubic feet, 1 percent more than in 2003. Mill byproducts generated from primary manufacturers increased 4 percent to 433 million cubic feet. Almost all plant residues were used primarily for fuel and fiber products. Pulpwood was the leading roundwood product at 543 million cubic feet; saw logs ranked second at 458 million cubic feet; veneer logs were third at 74 million cubic feet. The number of primary processing plants was down from 187 in 2003 to 181 in 2005. Total receipts increased 3 percent, from 1.17 billion cubic feet in 2003 to 1.21 billion cubic feet in 2005.
