Abstract

In 2007, industrial roundwood output from South Carolina’s forests totaled 613 million cubic feet, 5 percent less than in 2005. Mill byproducts generated from primary manufacturers decreased 6 percent to 176 million cubic feet. Almost all plant residues were used primarily for fuel and fiber products. Pulpwood was the leading roundwood product at 304 million cubic feet; saw logs ranked second at 226 million cubic feet; composite panels were third at 39 million cubic feet. The number of primary processing plants remained at 75 in 2007. Total receipts declined 2 percent to 569 million cubic feet.
