Abstract

South Carolina contains about 19.3 million acres of land area, less census water. The forest land area makes up 68 percent of the land area with 13.1 million acres. Commercial timberland area (land available for production of forest products) comprised >99 percent of the forest land area, or 13.0 million acres. The remaining 88,000 acres are reserved forest land where harvesting is prohibited by law (68,000 acres) and unproductive forest land not capable of producing at least 20 cubic feet per acre per year (20,000 acres).
