    In 2007, industrial roundwood output from North Carolina's forests totaled 728 million cubic feet, 7 percent less than in 2005. Mill byproducts generated from primary manufacturers declined 4 percent to 294 million cubic feet. Almost all plant residues were used primarily for fuel and fiber products. Saw logs were the leading roundwood product at 348 million cubic feet; pulpwood ranked second at 280 million cubic feet; veneer logs were third at 50 million cubic feet. The number of primary processing plants declined from 180 in 2005 to 163 in 2007. Total receipts decreased by 37 million cubic feet to 714 million cubic feet.
