Description: Results of the 2002 annual inventory of South Dakota show an estimated 1.7 million acres of forest land in the State. Timberland accounts for 92 percent of the forest land area. Nearly 70 percent of the timberland is publicly owned. Over 80 percent (1.3 billion cubic feet) of the growing-stock volume on timberland comes from ponderosa pine. All live aboveground tree biomass on timberland totals an estimated 30.5 million dry tons. Known pests in South Dakota's forests include the mountain pine beetle, pine engraver beetle, cedar bark beetle, red turpentine beetle, and ash/lilac borer.
