Total available timberland area was estimated at 648,454 acres. Cubic-foot volume on this timberland was estimated at 2.93 billion cubic feet. Timber growth and mortality were estimated at 19.51 million and 3.13 million cubic feet, respectively, Detailed tables provide additional breakdowns of inventory results.
