Description: Acreage of commercial forest land in this 22-county area has declined by 180,000 acres. or almost 6 percent, since 1960. Over this same period, volume of growing-stock timber increased by 581 million cubic feet, or almost 27 percent, reversing a downward trend in volume between 1951 and 1960. Softwoods have accounted for 85 percent of this net gain in volume. In 1970, net growth of growing stock totaled 170 million cubic feet, and exceeded removals by an estimated 52 million cubic feet, or 44 percent. Mortality caused by suppression, fire, weather, insects, disease, and other agents totaled almost 20 million cubic feet and reduced gross growth by 10 percent. Although not one of the leading causes of death, fusiform disease has afflicted an unusually high percentage of the pine stands.
