    Description

    Remeasurement of 675 permanent sample locations in the South Carolina Lowcountry using modified sampling techniques showed that net growth of pine for the 6 years 1968-1974 was 637.0 million cubic feet while removals were slightly over 390.6 million cubic feet. In 1974, there were 1,533.5 million cubic feet of pine in the area with that portion in sawtimber size amounting to more than 4,987.2 million board feet. Despite a high rate of forest activity in the area over the past 6 years, 56 percent of the stands that remained in forest were in good condition, 14 percent were mature and ready for harvest, and another 14 percent needed some type of intermediate treatment to improve the stand. The remaining 16 percent needed regeneration or stand conversion to make them productive
