    Description

    The fourth survey of Georgia's timber resource, completed in November 1972, shows improved timber supplies across most of the State since 1961. Inventory volume increased from 19.6 to 25.3 billion cubic feet, or by 29 percent. A group of counties south of the Altamaha river in Southeast Georgia was the only extensive area which experienced a reduction in timber volume. The rate of net annual growth increased by SO percent to an average of 63 cubic feet per acre of commercial forest. In 1971, timber growth exceeded removals by almost 55 percent. Some 2 million acres of commercial forest were diverted to other land uses, but only about 1 million acres of new forest were added, which reduced the timber base from 25.8 to 24.8 million acres, or by 3.7 percent.
