    Description

    On South Carolina's 12.2 million acres of timberland, 186 million cubic feet of timber were lost annually to mortality and cull between 1978 and 1986. The estimated annual monetary loss was $97.3 million. Among broad management types. natural pine, planted pine, upland hardwoods, and bottomland hardwoods - the greatest loss occurred in natural pine stands. About three-fourths of the loss occurred in the non-industrial private forests. Fusiform rust caused greatest damage to pines, but shoot- and stem-boring insects, littleleaf disease, pitch canker, and pine bark beetles also caused major losses. A significant increase in mortality of both upland and bottomland hardwoods was attributed to a complex of factors that includes stand dynamics and drought.
