Description: Twenty oak species in the eastern United States account for one-third of the hardwood sawtimber volume and almost 10 percent of both hardwood and softwood growing-stock volume. The oak-hickory and oak-pine forest types occupy about 38 percent of the forest land in the eastern United States. Oak timber volume is increasing. Annual growth exceeds annual removals by about 20 percent. In the next 30 years large increases in demand for oak timber are probable; and the better quality oak timber, particularly in the South, will probably be increasingly scarce.
