Description: In 2009, industrial roundwood output from Georgia’s forests totaled 1.05 billion cubic feet, 13 percent less than in 2007. Mill byproducts generated from primary manufacturers declined 29 percent to 292.4 million cubic feet. Almost all plant residues were used primarily for fuel and fiber products. Pulpwood was the leading roundwood product at 597.4 million cubic feet; saw logs ranked second at 309.5 million cubic feet; composite panels third at 57.9 million cubic feet. The number of primary processing plants was down from 168 in 2007 to 152 in 2009. Total receipts dropped from 1.22 billion cubic feet in 2007 to 1.05 billion cubic feet in 2009.
