Description: Over 764 million cubic feet of industrial roundwood products were harvested from North Carolina's forests during 1990, approximately 17 million cubic feet more than in 1987. Pulpwood accounted for 43 percent and saw logs 43 percent of the total roundwood production. Output of byproducts dropped from nearly 318 million cubic feet in 1987 to 295 million cubic feet in 1990. A little over 5 million cubic feet of residues, nearly 2 percent of the total produced, were not used. A total of 366 primary wood-using plants operated in the State during 1990. Mill receipts of more than 748 million cubic feet were 2 percent less than the State's production. The State was a net exporter of industrial roundwood.

Keywords: saw logs, pulpwood, veneer logs, mill residues
