    In 2008, a harvest and utilization study was conducted on 82 operations
    throughout Florida. There were 2,114 total trees measured: 1,670 or
    79 percent were softwood, while 444 or 21 percent were hardwood. Results
    from this study showed that 85 percent of the total softwood volume
    measured was utilized for a product, and 15 percent was left as logging
    residue. Seventy-four percent of the total hardwood volume measured was
    utilized for a product, while 26 percent was left as logging residue.
