DescriptionThe 1978 inventory of the forest resources of Prince William Sound and Afognak Island was designed to produce estimates of timberland area, volumes of timber, and growth and mortality of timber. Estimates of timber resource quantities were also categorized by owner. Nearly 56 percent of the available timberland area is under Forest Service management, and almost 40 percent is held by private interests. Total available timberland area was estimated at 648,454 acres. Cubic-foot volume on this timberland was estimated at 2.93 billion cubic feet. Timber growth and mortality were estimated at 19.51 million and 3.13 million cubic feet, respectively, Detailed tables provide additional breakdowns of inventory results. The inventory was conducted in 1977 and 1978; data compilation progressed through final update in 1988 to include current ownership summaries.
