    Description

    In 2005, roundwood output from Virginia's forests increased 3 percent to 503 million cubic feet. Mill byproducts generated from primary manufacturers totaled 179 million cubic feet, 5 percent more than in 2003. Seventy-three percent of the plant residues were used primarily for fuel and fiber products. Saw logs were the leading roundwood product at 228 million cubic feet; pulpwood ranked second at 200 million cubic feet; composite panels were third at 57 million cubic feet. The number of primary processing plants declined from 234 in 2003 to 196 in 2005. Total receipts increased 5 percent to 515 million cubic feet.
