    This report summarizes data on forest acreage, timber volume, growth, and drain collected by the Southern Forest Survey in Alabama, It is primarily the product of the new Forest Survey of the State, made between 1951 and 1953, but it also draws on the first Forest Survey of 1935-36 to show the changes in forest conditions during the intervening 1'7 years.21

    In the discussion of highlights that follows, the six Survey regions of the State (fig. 1) have been grouped into three. The West Central, North Central, and North regions are referred to as the North; the two southwestern regions are termed the Southwest.

    To make valid comparisons between the two Surveys, both sets of data must conform to the same standards. In this report the findings of the first Survey have been adjusted to those of the Resurvey. The reasons for and nature of these adjustments are discussed on page 15.
