    This bulletin describes forest resources of the Francis Marion and Sumter National Forests in the State of South Carolina. It is based on sampling from the eighth forest inventory conducted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service, Southern Research Station, Forest Inventory and Analysis Research Work Unit. Findings suggest that South Carolina’s national forests are recovering from destruction caused by Hurricane Hugo in 1989. This bulletin addresses forest area estimates; timber growth, removals, and mortality; forest health; and trends across 23 years.
