    Description

    Nearly 3.8 million acres or 28 percent of Louisiana's privately owned timberland were harvested between 1974 and 1984. This total excludes timberland impacted by thinning. Partial cutting was the most prevalent cutting practice and was most common on nonindustrial private land. Stocking of pine exceeded 60 percent in 50 percent of the pine and mixed pine-hardwood stands receiving final harvest cuts.
