DescriptionThis report presents timber resource statistics from 1962 and compares them with those from 1953 and 1936. It contains 17 line illustrations and 50 tables that deal with forest area, number of trees, timber volume and growth, desirable cut, timber product output, and timber cut statistics. It also includes a 30-year projection of timber growth and cut. The comparisons shows that timber volume has increased 37% since 1953, as Minnesota's second-growth forests approach maturity. Aspen dominates the resource in nearly all aspects. Though the acreage of commercial forest land is slightly less than before, a growing surplus of pulpwood-size timber suggests that the existing stands can support a larger cut than was advocated in 1953.
