DescriptionIn 2007, roundwood output from Kentucky’s forests totaled 186 million cubic feet, 3 percent less than in 2005. Mill byproducts generated from primary manufacturers decreased 5 percent to 90 million cubic feet. Seventy-seven percent of plant residues were used, primarily for fuel, miscellaneous, and fiber products. Saw logs were the leading roundwood product at 144 million cubic feet; pulpwood ranked a distant second at 25 million cubic feet; composite panels were third at 9 million cubic feet. The number of primary processing plants declined from 292 in 2005 to 253 in 2007. Total receipts declined 7 percent to 200 million cubic feet.
