East Texas harvest and utilization study, 2014


In 2014, a harvest and utilization study was completed on 68 logging operations throughout eastern Texas. There were 1,464 total trees measured: 1,149 or 78 percent were softwood, while 315 or 22 percent were hardwood. Results from this study showed that 81 percent of the total softwood volume measured was utilized for a product, and 19 percent was left as logging residue. Eighty-seven percent of the total hardwood volume measured was utilized for a product, while 13 percent was left as logging residue.
