Description: Management for timber crops is feasible on about 12,000 acres of forest land in American Samoa. Another 10,000 acres of forest land are on such steep topography that management for protection of watershed values should be paramount . Excluding such critical watersheds the forests hold 50 million board feet or more of sawtimber in a great variety of tree species. Some species have good growth form and wood quality. Little is known about the wood qualities of most.
