Abstract

This resource update provides an overview of timber product output (TPO) and use in South Dakota based on questionnaires designed to determine the size and composition of the State's primary wood-using industry, its use of roundwood, and its generation and disposition of wood residues. This study was a cooperative effort between the South Dakota Department of Agriculture, Resource Conservation and Forestry Division (SDRCF) and the Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) unit at the Northern Research Station (NRS) of the USDA Forest Service. SDRCF surveyed primary wood-using mills and FIA processed and analyzed the survey responses. This update presents results from the 2014 survey with comparisons to the 2009 survey. Certain terms used in this report—retained, export, import, production, and receipts—have specialized meanings and relationships unique to the FIA program that surveys timber product output (Fig. 1). Additional definitions and a list of the TPO species groups are on pages 4 and 5 of this report.
