DescriptionCommercial harvesting was'conducted on 5.7 million acres or 38 percent of the privately owned timberland in Misslssippi from 1977 through 1087. Three-fourths of the harvesting was on nonindustrial private timberland. Partial cutting was the harvesting method most often used by nonindustrial owners, while clearcuts were most common on forest industry land. Forty-seven percent of the pine and mixed pine-hardwood stands were harvested. Three-fourths of the harvested pine and mixed pine-hardwood stands were at least 60 percent stocked with pine following harvest.
