DescriptionThe tables and figures in this report were derived from data obtained through a multi-resource inventory of 82 counties and five survey regions comprising the state of Mississippi (fig. 1). The data on forest acreage and timber volume were secured by a three-step process. First, a forest-non-forest classification was accomplished on aerial photographs for points representing approximately 230 acres. Second, these photo classifications were adjusted on the basis of ground observations at sample locations representing approximately 3,840 acres. Finally, forest locations at the intersections of a grid of lines spaces 3 miles apart were subjected to on-the-ground measurements. At these forest locations, per-acre estimates were obtained from trees measured on a cluster of ten 37.5 basal area factor prism points.
