DescriptionWe developed a Southern Forest Resource Assessment Consortium (SOFAC) in 1994, which is designed to enhance our capabilities to analyze and model the southern forest and timber resources. Southern growth and yield analyses prepared for the RPA via SOFAC indicate that substantial increases in timber productivity can occur given current technology. A survey about NIPF management practices indicates that considerable adoption of increased management intensities is projected to occur. Even higher management intensities were projected on forest industry lands in the South. If these potentials are realized, the region will be able to provide adequate pine timber supplies at reasonable constant real prices in the future. Hardwood timber supply will be scarcer, as reflected in increasing real prices, despite having almost 50% more standiig inventory that softwoods
