DescriptionThe first intensive forest inventory of the Kuskokwim River flood plains and adjacent uplands was conducted in 1967. A commercial forest area of 252.5 thousand acres (102.2 thousand hectares) was identified with a growing-stock volume of 343.0 million cubic feet (9.7 million cubic meters). A noncommercial stratum was also examined that had substantial standing volume but did not qualify as commercial forest land. This stratum contained 70.4 thousand acres (28.5 thousand hectares) with a volume of 65.9 million cubic feet (1.9 million cubic meters).
