Description: The output of industrial timber products in South Carolina increased at an average annual rate of 2 percent between 1967 and 1976. Output from roundwood increased by 36 million cubic feet, while the output from plant byproducts increased 47 million cubic feet. Pulpwood was the leading roundwood product in the State throughout the period, followed by saw logs, and then veneer logs. At the end of the period, round pulpwood production was up by almost 10 percent, saw log production was down by almost 5 percent, and veneer log production had more than tripled. All of the gains in product output came from the softwood species group. Products from the hardwood species group declined sharply. There was a clear and constant shift in production from the Coastal forests to those along the Savannah River. The volume of unused plant residues dropped from over 22 million cubic feet to less than 6 million cubic feet.
