Title: Volume and Availability of Eastern Hardwoods

Author: Sheffield, Raymond M.; Bechtold, William A.;

Date: 1990

Source: In: Proceedings: Eighteenth Annual Hardwood Symposium of the Hardwood Research Council. Cashiers, North Carolina. May, 1990. p. 55-65

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: In the Eastern United States, some 354 million acres of timberland are classified as a hardwood or pine-hardwood forest type. The inventory of hardwood growing stock totals 275 billion cubic feet, or 90 percent of the hardwood inventory in the United States. Whereas hardwood inventories have increased by 70 percent since 1952, the availability of this resource for use by the wood products industry has probably not increased proportionately. Procedures for discounting total inventory to that which is more likely available from a physical standpoint are demonstrated.
