Description: The 1987 inventory of the forest resources of the Kenai Peninsula was designed to assess the impact of the spruce beetle (Dendroctonus rufipennis (Kirby)) on the timberland component of the forest resource. Estimates of timberland area, volumes of timber, and growth and mortality of timber were developed. These estimates of timber resource quantities were also categorized by owner. Total timberland area was estimated at 482 thousand acres. Cubic volume on this timberland was estimated at 1,211,577 thousand cubic feet. Timber growth and mortality were estimated at 9,245 and 7,958 thousand cubic feet, respectively. Detailed tables provide additional breakdowns of inventory results.
