Mill byproducts generated from primary manufacturers increased 17 percent to 321 million cubic feet. Almost all plant residues were used primarily for fuel and fiber products. Saw logs were the leading roundwood product at 343 million cubic feet; pulpwood ranked second at 337 million cubic feet; veneer logs were third at 146 million cubic feet. The number of primary processing plants increased from 60 in 2002 to 62 in 2005. Total receipts increased 18 percent to 936 million cubic feet.
