    Description

    In 2001, industrial roundwood output from North Carolina's forests totaled 759 million cubic feet, 4 percent less than in 1999. Mill byproducts generated from primary manufacturers increased nearly 1 percent to 313 million cubic feet. Almost all plant residues were used primarily for fuel and fiber products. Saw logs were the leading roundwood product at 425 million cubic feet; pulpwood ranked second at 243 million cubic feet; veneer logs were third at 53 million cubic feet. The number of primary processing plants declined from 278 in 1999 to 249 in 2001. Total receipts declined 47.5 million cubic feet to 722 million cubic feet.
