DescriptionIn 2005, industrial roundwood output from the South's forests totaled 8.7 billion cubic feet, 6 percent more than in 2003. Mill byproducts generated from primary manufacturers increased 1 percent to 3.2 billion cubic feet. Almost all plant residues were used primarily for fuel and fiber products. Saw logs were the leading roundwood product at 3.9 billion cubic feet; pulpwood ranked second at 3.5 billion cubic feet; veneer logs were third at 846 million cubic feet. The number of primary processing plants declined from 2,281 in 2003 to 2,028 in 2005. Total receipts increased 5 percent to 8.7 billion cubic feet.
