Title: Impacts on South Carolina timber production over the last five decades.

Author: Mo, Jinglong; Straka, Thomas; Harper, Richard;

Date: 2013

Source: Carolina Forestry Journal January-February:6–7

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Timberland ownership patterns and national forest timber harvesting policy have undergone significant changes in South Carolina over the past five decades. Timber output studies for the state commonly focused on short time frames and seldom addressed timberland ownership patterns in detail. We describe fifty-year timber output for South Carolina, allowing us to address economic cycles, industrial expansions and contractions, hurricanes, shifting ownership patterns, and national forest timber harvesting policies. We also addressed the relationship between mill capacity and industrial timber output.

Keywords: timber trend, timberland ownership, hurricane Hugo
