DescriptionForest inventories in the Southeast traditionally have been conducted by the Renewable Resources Evaluation (RRE) Work Unit on cycles of approximately 10 years. For certain areas, a 10-year cycle is too long. High resource demand, extensive land-use changes, and widespread natural disturbances can quickly change the forest resource situation. A 5-year inventory cycle is needed in these critical areas according to many forestry leaders. Budget limitations. hiring restrictions, and increased workloads, however, dim the prospects of reducing the cycle of a full-scale inventory to 5 years. Interim surveys in selected areas, therefore, seem more practical for examining specific problems. The RRE Unit at the Southeastern Forest Experiment Station has now twice used an interim survey to provide timely data for a resource of concern in a critical area. The results of an interim survey of the major pine resource regions of Virginia are presented in this report. Some of the results presented differ slightly from preliminary results released shortly after completion of the survey.
