Description: The tables in this report were derived from data obtained from an inventory of 11 counties comprising the Southwest Mississippi Unit (fig. I). The data on forest acreage and timber volume were secured by a three-step process. A forest-nonforest classification was accomplished on aerial photographs for points representing approximately 230 acres. These photo classifications were adjusted on the basis of ground observations at sample locations representing approximately 3,840 acres. Finally, forest locations at the intersections of a grid of lines spaced 3 miles apart were subjected to on-the-ground measurements. At these forest locations, per-acre estimates were obtained from trees measured on ten 37.5 basal area factor prism points.
