DescriptionSince the fourth inventory of the forest resources of Georgia in 1972, the area of commercial forest land decreased over 4 percent, or by almost 1.1 million acres. Commercial forests now cover approximately 23.7 million acres, 64 percent of the land area in the State. Nearly 5.1 million acres were harvested, while about 2.9 million acres were adequately regenerated. Volume of softwood growing stock increased 6 percent, and the volume of hardwood growing stock increased 17 percent.Net annual growth of softwood growing stock equaled 1.2 billion cubic feet compared to annual softwood removals of 1.1 billion cubic feet. Hardwood net annual growth equaled 567 million cubic feet compared to annual removals of 281 million cubic feet. Softwood mortality, which increased 145 percent since 1971, equals 207 million cubic feet and includes 535 million board feet of saw timber.
