DescriptionSince 1984, area of timberland in North Carolina declined by less than 1 percent and currently totals 18.7 million acres. Nonindustrial private forest landowners control 76 percent of the State's timberland. Volume of softwood growing stock increased 4 percent, and hardwood growing-stock volume also increased 4 percent. Softwood net annual growth rose 18 percent to 590 million cubic feet, whereas hardwood growth declined 9 percent to 570 million cubic feet. Annual removals of softwood and hardwood growing stock increased 19 and 36 percent, respectively. Annual softwood mortality leveled off, while hardwood mortality nearly doubled.
