Description: More than half of the commercial forest land in the Southeast Piedment supports hardwood stands held by small nonindustrial private landowners. Only 21 percent of all NIPF stands are fully stocked with growing-stock trees. Only 37 percent of all hardwood biomass harvested from these stands is currently being utilized. As these stands are harvested, about 39 tons of living residues per acre are left standing.
Keywords: Nonindustrial private forest land, forest trends, hardwood forest land, Piedmont forest land, forest biomass, hardwood timber volume, hardwood silviculture
