Author: Rosson, James F. Jr.;

Date: 1993

Source: Capturing opportunities of the south's forests:Proceedings for the 9th annual ARK-LA-TEX forestry forum;1992 December 1; Bossier City, LA. Louisiana State University Agricultural Center-Louisiana Cooperative Extension Service :21-24.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: The sixth Louisiana forest survey was completed in November 1991.Previous surveys were done in 1935, 1954, 1964, 1974, and 1984. Information derived from the forest survey has become more and more detailed and comprehensive since the first survey in 1935 as a direct result of enhanced sampling techniques, expanded administrative budgets, and development of computer technology. Therefore, acknowledging the potential wealth of information but being mindful of the need for a reasonable time frame, this presentation will cover only arbitrarily chosen highlights of the sixth Louisiana forest survey. Important topics to be covered are changes in timberland area, softwood and hardwood volume, growth, mortality, removals, and precommercial-sized softwoods.
