    Since 1982, area of timberland in Georgia has declined by about 102,000 acres to 23.6 million acres. Nonindustrial private owners control 68 percent of the State's timberland. New pine stands established by artificial and natural means exceeded the area of pine harvested by over 3 percent. Number of softwood stems declined in all diameter classes through the 14-inch class. Volume softwood growing stock dropped 6 percent to 15.6 billion cubic feet. At the time, volume of hardwood growing stock was up 5 percent to 15.1 billion cubic feet. Net annual growth of softwoods decreased by 143 million cubic feet and presently averages 818 million cubic feet. Hardwood growth was down 11 percent to 457 million cubic feet. Annual removals of softwoods increased 16 percent to 960 million cubic feet, whereas removals of hardwoods increased by 50 percent to 343 million cubic feet.
