    Description

    The 1990 forest inventory of North Alabama revealed the following:
    • Timberland area is 2,105.1 thousand acres, a decrease of 4 percent.
    • The distribution of live-tree volume shows that the large increases that too place in all but the 6-inch class between 1972 and 1982 have abated. Past declines in the 6-inch class have continued for both hardwoods and softwoods.
    • Live-wood volume totals 2,515.0 million cubic feet, about the same as in 1982.
    • Hardwood sawtimber volume is 4,992.7 million board feet, an increase of 16 percent.
    • Net growth is nearly double the removals of live hardwoods.
    • Removals of live softwoods increased by 42 percent, and now represent nearly half of total removals.
    • The growth-to-removals relationship is tight for live softwoods, with removals exceeding growth in six of the 10 counties.
