Description: The fourth survey of Fiorida's timber resources shows that area of commercial forest land totals 16.2 million acres, or 46 percent of the total land. Erosion of the fores: base has continued with an actual decrease of 940,400 acres, or almost 5 percent, since 1959. Most of this decrease was the result of land clearing for agricultural use and urban development. An additional 2,673,500 acres in South and Central Florida formerly classified as commercial forest were reclassified either to natural rangeland or unproductive forest. Over this same ll-year period, volume of growing-stock timber increased 20 percent, from 9.1 to 10.9 billion cubic feet. In 1969, net growth of growing stock exceeded removals by 184 miliion cubic feet, or 53 percent.
