Twenty-Five Year Growth Record on Managed Timberland in Southwest Mississippi
Abstract:Records kept for a 25-year period on a forest of 35,906 acres in southwest Mississippi show a growth rate of .946 cords per acre per year for the entire period. Heavy cutting and severe damage by an ice storm in 1951 depleted the forest. Therefore growth was separately determined for the 19-year period beginning in 1952 and found to be 1.163 cords per acre per year. Five-year growth rate, starting in 1971, is projected at 1.5 cords.
