    Description

There were 1,981 total trees measured: 1,453 or 73 percent were softwood, while 528 or 27 percent were hardwood. Results from this study showed that 88 percent of the total softwood volume measured was utilized for a product, and 12 percent was left as logging residue. Seventy-eight percent of the total hardwood volume measured was utilized for a product, while 22 percent was left as logging residue.
