There were 2,129 total trees measured: 1,842 or 87 percent were softwood, while 287 or 13 percent were hardwood. Results from this study showed that 87 percent of the total softwood volume measured was utilized for a product, and 13 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.
