Abstract

In 2005, roundwood output from Arkansas's forests totaled 749 million cubic feet. Mill byproducts generated from primary manufacturers were 354 million cubic feet. Almost all plant residues were used, primarily for fuel and fiber products. Saw logs were the leading roundwood product at 390 million cubic feet; pulpwood ranked second at 235 million cubic feet; and veneer logs were third at 95 million cubic feet. The number of primary processing plants was 156 in 2005. Receipts for those mills totaled 814 million cubic feet.
