Tennessee's timber industry - an assessment of timber product output and use, 1995
This report contains the findings of a 1995 canvass of all primary wood-using plants in Tennessee. It complements the Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) periodic inventory of volume and removals from the State’s timberland. The canvass was conducted to determine the amount and source of wood receipts and annual timber product drain by county in 1995 and to determine interstate and cross-regional movement of industrial roundwood. Primary mills are those that process roundwood in log or bolt form or as chipped roundwood. Examples of industrial round-wood products are saw logs, pulpwood, veneer logs, poles, and logs used for composite board products. Mills producing products from residues generated at primary and secondary processors were not canvassed. Trees chipped in the woods were included in the estimate of timber drain only if they were delivered to a primary domestic manufacturer.
