Abstract

In 2005, volume of industrial roundwood output from Florida's forests totaled 445 million cubic feet, 13 percent less than in 2003. Mill byproducts generated from primary manufacturers declined to 146 million cubic feet. Almost all plant residues were used primarily for fuel and fiber products. Pulpwood was the leading roundwood product at 214 million cubic feet; saw logs ranked second at 167 million cubic feet; veneer logs were third at 26 million cubic feet. Total receipts declined 5 percent to 460 million cubic feet. The number of primary processing plants totaled 93 in 2005.
