In North Carolina, timberland is the main land use type covering 58% of the total land in the state, which supports a vibrant forest product industry. In 2019, the total stumpage value of timber harvest, the value that landowners received for their standing timber, was about $578 million, up 20% from a year ago. Moreover, the total value that mills paid (i.e., the delivered value) was about $1.17 billion, up 23% from 2018. According to the 2018 US Forest Service Timber Product Output (TPO) survey, both sawtimber and pulpwood harvests were up substantially to about 356.9 million cubic feet and 441.2 million cubic feet, respectively. Several counties realized significant changes in the values from last year, due primarily to the changes in timber harvests (TPO) data. Craven, Beaufort, and Columbus were the top three counties in terms of the 2019 timber delivered values, respectively.
