Description: In the South, about 0.8 ton of hardwoods grow on pine site for every ton of pine biomass. About half of this hardwood volume is in 11 oak (Quercus sp.) species, with sweetgum (Liquidambar styraciflua L.) and hickory (Carya sp.) also comprising important fractions. About half the volume is in trees 5.0 to 10.9 inches in dbh, with the remaining volume about evenly divided between trees 11.0 - 14.9 inches dbh and trees 15 + inches in dbh (Christoper et al. 1976, Murphy and Knight 1974).
