    Description

    Since 1987, area of timberland in Florida decreased by 2 percent to less than 14.7 million acres. Timberland under nonindustrial private forest ownership increased 2 percent to 7.2 million acres, and public ownership increased 16 percent to 2.8 million acres, but timberland controlled by forest industry decreased by 16 percent to 4.6 million acres. Pine plantations now account for 32 of the States's timberland, the highest proportion in the South. Volume of softwood growing stock increased almost 5 percent to 9.4 billion cubic feet, and volume of hardwood growing stock increased nearly 10 percent to more than 5.9 billion cubic feet. Net annual growth of softwood growing stock increased 9 percent to 532 million cubic feet, and that of hardwood increased 14 percent to 161 million cubic feet. Average annual removals of softwood growing stock changed little at 473 million cubic feet, whereas that for hardwood increased 33 percent to 88 million cubic feet.
