Description: The 1987 Forest Survey of Mississippi shows a slight increase in forest area and a substantial gain in hardwood inventory. Hardwood gains, appearing in all diameter classes, suggest an increase in quality but hardwood users generally believe quality is declining. By our analysis, volume of top quality hardwood declined while volume in other grades increased. Forest Survey grading is conservative when compared with grades assigned by a hardwood specialist.User constraints applied to the survey data base severely limit the amount of "available" quality hardwood. Forest Survey data are available so users can conduct their own analyses.
