    The first full annual inventory of New Jersey's forests reports more than 2.0 million acres of forest land and 83 tree species. Forest land is dominated by oak-hickory forest types in the north and pitch pine forest types in the south. The volume of growing stock on timberland has been rising since 1956 and currently totals 3.4 billion cubic feet. The average annual net growth of growing stock from 1999 to 2008 averages 94.6 million cubic feet per year. This report includes additional information on forest attributes, land use change, carbon, timber products, and forest health. The included DVD provides information on error estimates, quality assurance of data collection, tables, and raw data.
