DescriptionSince 1989, area of timberland in Georgia increased by less than 1 percent and in 1997 totaled 23.8 million acres. Nonindustrial private forest owners controlled 72 percent of the State's timberland. Volume of softwood growing stock declined 3 percent, whereas hardwood growing-stock volume increased 7 percent to 16.5 billion cubic feet. Net annual growth for softwood growing stock averaged 1.0 billion cubic feet and the ratio of softwood growth to removals was 0.95 to 1. Net annual growth for hardwood growing stock averaged 523 million cubic feet and hardwood growth exceeded removals by 34 percent.
