Saw logs were the leading roundwood product at 526 million cubic feet; pulpwood ranked second at 287 million cubic feet; and veneer logs were third at 78 million cubic feet. The number of primary processing plants increased to 116 in 2002. Total receipts increased 4 percent to 888 million cubic feet.
