Mill byproducts generated from primary manufacturers decreased 18 percent to 89 million cubic feet. Ninety-four percent of plant residues were used, primarily for miscellaneous and fiber products. Saw logs were the leading roundwood product at 156 million cubic feet; pulpwood ranked a distant second at 17 million cubic feet; other industrial products were third at 14 million cubic feet. The number of primary processing plants declined from 348 in 1999 to 337 in 2001. Total receipts decreased 7 percent to 220 million cubic feet.
