Description: Production of high-quality hardwoods is important in Ohio and black walnut ranks as one of the most valuable tree species in the State along with cherry, white and red oak, and ash. Ohio has more walnut growing stock volume than any other state, according to the most recently completed forest inventories in the East. The fourth and most recent measurement of Ohio?s forests in 1991 estimated that more than 35 billion trees (including 31 billion seedlings) of 103 different species grow in Ohio''s forests and that more than 99 percent of these were hardwoods. The periodic inventory was conducted by the Northeastern Forest Experiment Station in cooperation with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (Griffith et al. 1992). To accomplish this survey, forest inventory analysts examined 77 thousand photo points and field crews measured 4,807 forest plots in the State.

Keywords: Fine hardwood, forest inventory.
