Description: An average of 57.4 million cubic feet of timber was lost annually to mortality and cull from 1976 to 1986 in east Oklahoma's 4.75 million acres of commercial forest land, resulting in a monetary loss of $7.2 million per year. Hardwoods generally had more damage than softwoods, with upland hardwoods accounting for 63 percent of cull volume loss. Of the ownership classes, nonindustrial private forests sustained the most damage. Disease caused the greatest damage to the forests, but weather, stem and shoot borers, and inhibiting vegetation also contributed significantly to volume losses.
Keywords: economic timber losses, forest diseases, forest insects, forest inventory analysis
