    Description

    Missouri's third Forest Survey showed an 11% decline in commercial forest area between 1959 and 1972. Most of this land was converted to nonforest uses, primarily pasture. Of the land that remained classified as commercial forest, 75% underwent little or no treatment between surveys.
