    Description

    In 2001, roundwood output from South Carolina's forests totaled 548 million cubic feet, 12 percent less than in 1999. Mill byproducts generated from primary manufacturers declined 12 percent to 172 million cubic feet. Almost all plant residues were used primarily for fuel and fiber products. Pulpwood was the leading roundwood product at 270 million cubic feet; saw logs ranked second at 216 million cubic feet; veneer logs were third at 48 million cubic feet. The number of primary processing plants declined from 90 in 1999 to 76 in 2001. Total receipts declined 11 percent to 525 million cubic feet.
