Sawlogs accounted for 70 percent of the total and pulpwood accounted for 21 percent. During this 8-year period, sawlog production was up by 35 percent to 563 million board feet. Pulpwood production reached 272,000 cords of roundwood and 286,000 cord equivalents of residue chips. The use of manufacturing residues produced at West Virginia mills increased from 75 percent to 90 percent. The largest use of residues was for fiber.
