    In 2007, a harvest and utilization study was conducted on 83 operations throughout North Carolina. There were 2,119 total trees measured: 1,323 or 62 percent were softwood, while 796 or 38 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-seven percent of the total hardwood volume measured was utilized for a product, while 23 percent was left as logging residue.
