In 2001, roundwood output from Virginia’s forests remained stable at 492 million cubic feet. Mill byproducts generated from primary manufacturers totaled 181 million cubic feet, 9 percent more than in 1999. Seventy-five percent of the plant residues were used primarily for fuel and fiber products. Saw logs were the leading roundwood product at 252 million cubic feet; pulpwood ranked second at 170 million cubic feet; composite panels were third at 48 million cubic feet. The number of primary processing plants decreased from 290 in 1999 to 248 in 2001. Total receipts increased 1 percent to 492 million cubic feet.
