    Description

    Twenty-one percent, or 17.6 million acres, of the timberland in the South Atlantic States was classified as wetland timberland. Sixty percent of the region’s wetland timberland was under nonindustrial private forest ownership. Forty-eight percent of the region’s wetland timberland was classified as sawtimber-sized stands. Lowland hardwood types made up 62 percent of the wetland timberland. Thirty-one percent of the wetland timberland occurred on a flatwoods physiography. Wetland timberland contained 30 billion cubic feet of growing-stock volume, 24 percent of the region’s total. Removals from wetland timberland averaged 842 million cubic feet, 20 percent of the region’s total. The two greatest impacts to wetland timberland were natural disturbance and final harvest, which averaged 375 and 295 thousand acres annually, respectively.
