    Description

    Commercial forests occupy 3.2 million acres, or 75 percent of the total land in the 21-county area of North Georgia. There has been less forestry activity in this area than in any other part of the State. In the latest Forest Survey, 7 out of every:10 acres now classified as commercial forest showed no evidence of treatment or major disturbance over the past 11 years. Since 1961, area of commercial forest has decreased by less than 3 percent, while the inventory of softwood and hardwood growing stock has increased by 67 and 32 percent, respectively. Net annual growth averages 55 cubic feet per acre of commercial forest land, almost double the volume of annual timber removals.
