    Description

    Results of the 2002 annual inventory of Missouri''s forest resources show an estimated 14.5 million acres of forest land. The oak-hickory type is the predominant forest type on the landscape, making up over 70 percent of all forested land. Pinyon-juniper (primarily eastern redcedar) is the primary softwood component by acreage, although shortleaf pine makes up the majority of the volume. Between 1989 and 1999-2002, the net volume of all live trees on timberland increased by 24 percent, from 13.8 billion cubic feet to 17.2 billion cubic feet. The continued drought, along with the mature age of many of the oak forests and overstocked forest stands, may worsen oak decline.
