Description: Results of the fifth annual inventory of Missouri show that since 1989 forest land area has increased slightly. The forest is composed predominantly of hardwoods--the oak-hickory forest type alone occupies 71 percent of the timberland area. Softwood occupies 4 percent of timberland area, and the area of eastern redcedar is expanding. Between 1989 and 2000, total volume of all live trees in timberland increased by 25 percent, from 13.8 billion cubic feet to 17.3 billion cubic feet. Oak decline is a continuing concern, along with the risk of gypsy moth establishment in Missouri.

Keywords: Annual inventory, forest area, forest type, volume, biomass, Missouri.
