During a resurvey of New Jersey's timber resources, a study measured the losses of wood fiber attributable to clearing of forest land. An estimated 120 million cubic feet of growing stock were destroyed on the 164,000 acres of commercial forest land cleared between 1955 and 1971. Most of the recovered industrial wood fiber came from forest lands converted to agricultural use, and most of the recovered firewood came from home-building sites.
