Description: In 1999, industrial roundwood output from the South's forests totaled 8.7 billion cubic feet, 1 percent less than in 1995. Mill byproducts generated from primary manufacturers increased 1 percent to 3.1 billion cubic feet. Almost all plant residues were used primarily for fuel and fiber products. Pulpwood was the leading roundwood product at 3.75 billion cubic feet; saw logs ranked second at 3.74 billion cubic feet; veneer logs were third at 897 million cubic feet. The number of primary processing plants decreased from 2,812 in 1995 to 2,551 in 1999. Total receipts declined less than 1 percent to 8.7 billion cubic feet.
