    Description

    Alabama's timberland supports 76.2 billion board feet of sawtimber (International 1/4-inch Rule), of which 55 percent is contributed by yellow pine species. Currently, yellow pine sawtimber volume totals 41.8 billion board feet. The recent inventory conducted by the USDA-Forest Service, Southern Forest Experiment Station, Forest Inventory and Analysis Unit (SO-FIA) indicates that yellow pine sawtimber volume decreased by 1 percent over the past eight years (McWilliams in prep.). This trend reverses past findings of increases in yellow pine sawtimber. This paper discusses these findings and examines the availability of yellow pine sawtimber in the State.
