    Description

    In 2007, roundwood output from Virginia's forests decreased 8 percent to 464 million cubic feet. Mill byproducts generated from primary manufacturers totaled 175 million cubic feet, 3 percent less than in 2005. Seventy-five percent of the plant residues were used primarily for fuel and fiber products. Saw logs were the leading roundwood product at 219 million cubic feet; pulpwood ranked second at 162 million cubic feet; composite panels were third at 54 million cubic feet. The number of primary processing plants declined from 196 in 2005 to 179 in 2007. Total receipts decreased 7 percent to 480 million cubic feet.
