    This annual report summarizes tree planting, timber stand improvement, and nursery production activities across all ownerships of forest land in the United States. It includes State-by-State and ownership breakdowns, regional totals, as well as analysis of trends in the data. It does not include tree planting in urban and community environments. As far as we know, it is the most complete compilation of such data in the country. Because some of the data are estimated, caution must be used in drawing inferences. 1998 SUMMARY: * Trees were planted on 2,624,681 acres; * Timber stand improvement was completed on 2,398,543 acres; * Nursery production totaled 1,642,089,000 trees
