North Carolina harvest and utilization study, 2015

Abstract

In 2015, a harvest and utilization study was completed on 95 operations throughout North Carolina. There were 2,125 total trees measured: 1,284 or 60 percent were softwood, while 841 or 40 percent were hardwood. Results from this study showed that 85 percent of the total softwood volume measured was utilized for a product, and 15 percent was left as logging residue. Seventyfour percent of the total hardwood volume measured was utilized for a product, while 26 percent was left as logging residue.
