Abstract

In 1997, roundwood output from Alabama's forests totaled 1.3 billion cubic feet. Mill byproducts generated from primary manufacturers amounted to 477 million cubic feet. Almost all plant residues were used primarily for fuel and fiber products. Pulpwood was the leading roundwood product at 765 million cubic feet; saw logs ranked second at 450 million cubic feet; veneer logs were third at 93 million cubic feet. The number of primary processing plants was 210. Total receipts amounted to 1.4 billion cubic feet.
