Abstract

In 2003, volume of roundwood output from Florida's forests totaled 509 million cubic feet, 2 percent more than in 1999. Mill byproducts generated from primary manufacturers decreased to 151 million cubic feet. Almost all plant residues were used primarily for fuel and fiber products. Pulpwood was the leading roundwood product at 271 million cubic feet; saw logs ranked second at 171 million cubic feet; veneer logs were third at 32 million cubic feet. Total receipts declined 2 percent to 484 million cubic feet. The number of primary processing plants declined from 93 in 1999 to 92 in 2003.
