    Description

    Eastern South Dakota's 113,600 acres of commercial forest land supported 51.9 million cubic feet of growing stock in 1981. This is a decrease in timber volume of 24 percent since the last inventory in 1965. the decrease was entirely in hardwood species. Cottonwood is the most abundant tree species -- it accounts for 33 percent of the growing-stock volume and comprises 44 percent of the sawtimber volume. Shannon County in the southwestern part of the State contains the largest amount of timber volume.
