Description: The output of industrial timber products from South Carolina’s forests amounted to 506.9 million cubic feet in 1981, 5 percent less than in 1977. An increase in output from softwood roundwood of almost 2.8 million cubic feet was more than offset by a decrease in hardwood roundwood output of more than 5.8 cubic feet. Pulpwood was the leading roundwood product in the State throughout the period, followed by saw logs and then veneer logs. The trend toward complete utilization of plant byproducts continued, with the volume of unused plant residues dropping from over 7.5 million cubic feet in 1977 to only 1.3 million cubic feet in 1981.

Keywords: Roundwood receipts, roundwood output, plant byproducts, residues, wood movement
