Abstract

In 1999, roundwood output from Virginia's forests totaled 492 million cubic feet, 8 percent more than in 1995. Mill byproducts generated from primary manufacturers remained stable at 167 million cubic feet. Almost 72 percent of the plant residues were used primarily for fuel and fiber products. Saw logs were the leading roundwood product at 246 million cubic feet; pulpwood ranked second at 175 million cubic feet; composite panels were third at 46 million cubic feet. The number of primary processing plants increased from 289 in 1995 to 290 in 1999. Total receipts increased 1 percent to almost 490 million cubic feet.
