    In 2007, industrial roundwood output from Mississippi’s forests totaled 894 million cubic feet, 13 percent less than in 2005. Mill byproducts generated from primary manufacturers decreased 18 percent to 316 million cubic feet. Almost all plant residues were used primarily for fuel and fiber products. Pulpwood was the leading roundwood product at 401 million cubic feet; saw logs ranked second at 379 million cubic feet; veneer logs were third at 76 million cubic feet. There was a total of 84 primary processing plants in 2007, a loss of 32 since 2005. Total receipts decreased 18 percent to 746 million cubic feet.
