DescriptionThe results of a statewide inventory of California's hardwood resources are presented. This is the first comprehensive inventory with tree and stand measurements ever conducted in the extensive oak woodlands. In timberland areas where hardwoods had been previously inventoried, improved procedures and volume equations developed specifically for the major California hardwood species were used in the new inventory. Included are details on area and volume of hardwoods by ownership; growth and mortality of hardwoods on timberland; hardwood tree cutting on timberland and woodland; the extent of types and species occurrence; stand characteristics; regeneration; extent of grazing in woodland areas; and changes in hardwood area from 1945 to 1985.
