Description: The present condition and future of the timber resource in the Coastal Plain of Virginia have caused increasing concern among resource planners, land managers, and citizens. Problems identified in past forest surveys contributed to this concern. This report focuses on some of the timber resource problems of the Coastal Plain by presenting forest resource trends, remedial actions taken to solve the problems identified, additional mensurational analyses of the data from the latest survey, and opportunities for improving present stand conditions. The findings of the latest survey of the Coastal Plain are included in "Forest Statistics for the Coastal Plain of Virginia, 1976"(Cost 1976). That report contains 26 detailed statistical tables and can be obtained from the Southeastern Forest Experiment Station, P. 0. Box 2570, Asheville, North Carolina 28802.
