Description: Under the authority of the McSweeney-McNary Forest Research Act of May 22, 1928, and subsequent amendments, the Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture, conducts a series of continuing forest surveys of all states to provide up-to-date information about the forest resources of the Nation. The first forest survey of Delaware was made in 1956 by the Northeastern Forest Experiment Station. A resurvey was made in 1971 with excellent help and cooperation of the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control. Aerial photographs used for this survey were also supplied by the Department. The resurvey of the State was directed by Carl E. Mayer, leader of the Forest Survey Project. He was assisted by John R. Peters, who supervised the field crews; Joseph E. Barnard and David R. Dickson, who applied the general sampling procedures used by the Forest Survey to meet the specific requirements for the Delaware inventory; James T. Bones, who, with the cooperation of the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control, collected and compiled data on timber products output and plant residues; Teresa M. Bowers, who assisted in computing and compiling data for the sampling design and the tables in this report; and Carmela M. Hyland, who assisted with administrative services for the field crews and typed the manuscript and tables. The authors and Joseph E. Barnard checked the consistency of the previous inventory with the new inventory. They made frequent use of the TRAS model in this phase of the data analysis and in the 30-year projections of timber volumes.
