Description: On South Carolina's 12.2 million acres of timberland, 186 million cubic feet of timber were lost annually to mortality and cull between 1978 and 1986. The estimated annual monetary loss was $97.3 million. Among broad management types. natural pine, planted pine, upland hardwoods, and bottomland hardwoods - the greatest loss occurred in natural pine stands. About three-fourths of the loss occurred in the non-industrial private forests. Fusiform rust caused greatest damage to pines, but shoot- and stem-boring insects, littleleaf disease, pitch canker, and pine bark beetles also caused major losses. A significant increase in mortality of both upland and bottomland hardwoods was attributed to a complex of factors that includes stand dynamics and drought.
