    Description

    In 2009, roundwood output from Kentucky’s forests totaled 136.3 million cubic feet, 27 percent less than in 2007. Mill byproducts generated from primary manufacturers decreased 28 percent to 65.4 million cubic feet. Ninety-nine percent of plant residues were used for a product. Industrial fuel, charcoal/chemical wood, and miscellaneous were the primary uses of mill residue produced. Saw logs were the leading roundwood product at 102.6 million cubic feet; pulpwood ranked a distant second at 27.9 million cubic feet; veneer logs were third at 3.4 million cubic feet. The number of primary processing plants declined from 253 in 2007 to 225 in 2009. Total receipts declined 27 percent to 146.7 million cubic feet.
