    Description

    The fifth inventory of South Carolina's forests was expanded to accommodate both timber and nontimber evaluations. This report presents the principal findings of the timber evaluation. Between 1968 and 1978, area of commercial forest land increased from 12.4 to 12.5 million acres, or less than 1 percent. Volume of growing-stock timber increased from 13.3 to 17.2 billion cubic feet, or by 29 percent. Net annual growth increased to an average of 77 cubic feet per acre, a record high in the Southeast. Annual removal of softwood timber was up 25 percent; annual removal of hardwood was down 12 percent.
