Description: In 1997, roundwood output from South Carolina’s forests totaled 628 million cubic feet, 1 percent more than in 1995. Mill byproducts generated from primary manufacturers declined 1 percent to 200 million cubic feet. Almost all plant residues were used primarily for fuel and fiber products. Pulp-wood was the leading roundwood product at 322 million cubic feet; saw logs ranked second at 252 million cubic feet; veneer logs were third at 48 million cubic feet. The number of primary processing plants declined from 99 in 1995 to 92 in 1997. Total receipts increased slightly to 620 million cubic feet.
