DescriptionArea of timberland has declined by 87,000 acres, or 2 percent. Altogether, 245,000 acres of timberland were diverted to other land uses. More than three-fourths of the diversions were about equally divided between agricultural uses and urban development. The addition of 133,000 acres of timberland, 93 percent from nonforest sources and 7 percent from a reclassification of reserved timberland, partially offset the area diverted. A land transfer between counties, which resulted in a change to FIA survey unit boundaries, added nearly 25, 000 acres of timberland to the Piedmont survey unit. Timberland in these 18 counties now covers 4.4 million acres and accounts for two-thirds of the land area in the region.
