Abstract

In 2011, a harvest and utilization study was conducted on 80 operations throughout South Carolina. There were 1,974 total trees measured; 1,317 or 67 percent were softwood, while 657 or 33 percent were hardwood. Results from this study showed that 86 percent of the total softwood volume measured was utilized for a product, and 14 percent was left as logging residue. Seventy-seven percent of the total hardwood volume measured was utilized for a product, while 33 percent was left as logging residue.
