DescriptionSince 1986, area of timberland in Virginia declined by 1 percent and currently totals 15.4 million acres. Nonindustrial private owners control 77 percent of the State's timberland. Volume of softwood growing stock increased 6 percent to 6.6 billion cubic feet, and hardwood growing-stock volume was up by an equal rate to 19.8 billion cubic feet. Softwood net annual growth increased by 38 percent to 317 million cubic feet, and hardwood growth declined 7 percent to 531 million cubic feet. Annual removals of softwood and hardwood growing stock increased 22 and 27 percent, respectively. Annual softwood mortality was down 24 percent, while hardwood mortality increased 33 percent.
