    Description

    In 2009, industrial roundwood output from the South’s forests totaled 6.56 billion cubic feet, 20 percent less than in 2007. Pulpwood was the leading roundwood product at 3.43 billion cubic feet; saw logs ranked second at 2.26 billion cubic feet; veneer logs were third at 384.4 million cubic feet. Total receipts declined 21 percent to 6.55 billion cubic feet. Mill byproducts generated from primary manufacturers declined 33 percent to 1.97 billion cubic feet. Almost all plant residues produced were used for another product. Fuel and fiber products accounted for 85 percent of utilized plant byproducts. The number of primary processing plants declined from 1,882 in 2007 to 1,529 in 2009, a net loss of 353 mills.
