Mill byproducts generated from primary manufacturers declined 2 percent to 197 million cubic feet. Almost all plant residues were used primarily for fuel and fiber products. Pulpwood was the leading roundwood product at 324 million cubic feet; saw logs ranked second at 242 million cubic feet; veneer logs were third at 54 million cubic feet. The number of primary processing plants declined from 92 in 1997 to 90 in 1999. Total receipts declined 5 percent to 587 million cubic feet.
