Mill byproducts generated from primary manufacturers decreased 28 percent to 65.4 million cubic feet. Ninety-nine percent of plant residues were used for a product. Industrial fuel, charcoal/chemical wood, and miscellaneous were the primary uses of mill residue produced. Saw logs were the leading roundwood product at 102.6 million cubic feet; pulpwood ranked a distant second at 27.9 million cubic feet; veneer logs were third at 3.4 million cubic feet.
