    Description

    In 2002, industrial roundwood output from Louisiana's forests totaled 720 million cubic feet, 10 percent less than in 1999. Mill byproducts generated from primary manufacturers decreased 4 percent to 275 million cubic feet. Almost all plant residues were used primarily for fuel and fiber products. Saw logs were the leading roundwood product at 273 million cubic feet; pulpwood ranked second at 266 million cubic feet; veneer logs were third at 137 million cubic feet. The number of primary processing plants increased from 57 in 1999 to 60 in 2002. Total receipts decreased 11 percent to 793 million cubic feet.
