Description: More than 534 million cubic feet of industrial roundwood products were harvested from North Carolina forests during 1979, 2 percent more than in 1976 but 7 percent less than in 1973. Saw logs and pulpwood were the leading roundwood products with 91 percent of output. Byproduct output increased from 94 million cubic feet in 973 to more than 144 million cubic feet in 1979, a 53 percent increase. A total of 530 primary wood-using plants operated in North Carolina during 1979, an increase of more than 100 plants, mostly sawmills, since 1973. North Carolina's output of 534 million cubic feet of industrial roundwood exceeded receipts by 15 million cubic feet in 1979, making the State a net exporter of industrial roundwood. A trend toward complete utilization of residues continued. Use of residues was 87 percent for bark, 98 percent for coarse materials, 89 percent for sawdust, and 97 percent for shavings.
