    Description

    Since 1961, some 373,000 acres of commercial forest land in the 32-county area of North Central Georgia have been diverted to other uses. Over the same period, 288,000 acres of new forestland were added, for a net decrease of 85,000 acres. Net growth has exceeded removals of growing-stock timber; volume of softwood has increased by 76 percent and hardwood volume has increased by 39 percent. Only 12 percent of the commercial forests are less than 60 percent stocked with growing-stock trees. The net growth averaged 79 cubic feet per acre in 1971, a record high for an entire Forest Survey Unit in the Southeast.
