Description: This report is a compilation of timber product output for the United States and the five Resources Planning Act regions for 1996 and is a companion report to the Forest Resources of the United States, 1997. Roundwood output from the Nation's forests totaled 16.4 billion cubic feet, 8 percent less than in 1991. Saw logs were the leading roundwood product at 7.1 billion cubic feet; pulpwood ranked second at 5.2 billion cubic feet; and veneer logs were third at 1.3 billion cubic feet. The South supplied 58 percent of the Nation's timber product output and had 7 of the top 10 producing States. Softwood species accounted for 61 percent of output, and nonindustrial private forest owners supplied 60 percent of the Nation's roundwood products. Mill byproducts generated from primary manufacturers totaled 6.1 billion cubic feet. Only 2 percent of the mill residues were not used. Mill residue was used primarily for fuel and fiber products.
