Description: The southern pines comprise the primary softwood timber species in the United States. Further, their relative importance is increasing. It is estimated that by the year 2000, 51 percent of the softwood used in this country will come from the South (USDA Forest Service 1965, p. 112). These pines occupy about 20 percent of the 509 million acres of commercial forest land in the United States (USDA Forest Service 1965, pp. 76, 80, 146). In the opinion of many foresters, the bulk of the southern pine lands are capable of growing in excess of a cord of wood per acre annually.
