DescriptionIn 2007, there were 116 primary wood-processing mills in West Virginia, 60 fewer mills than in 2000. These mills processed 172.9 million cubic feet of industrial roundwood, of which 138.8 million cubic feet was harvested from the State. Another 50.5 million cubic feet of the industrial roundwood harvested in West Virginia was sent to primary wood-processing mills in other states and countries. Saw log harvesting accounted for 55 percent of the total harvest. The harvesting of industrial roundwood products produced 100.9 million cubic feet of logging residues. Primary wood-processing mills generated 2.1 million green tons of mill residues, with just over half of the mill residues being used by the pulpwood and particleboard industries. Only 1 percent of the mill residues generated were not being used for other products.
