This publication presents the initial results of the fifth inventory of Indiana's forest resources, marking the first complete cycle of the new annual inventory system. Since 1998, total forest land area has increased by a little over 50,000 acres. As in every inventory since 1950, the oak/hickory type is the largest forest type on the landscape, making up over 59.3 percent of all forested land. Softwoods make up approximately 2.8 percent of Indiana's forested acreage. The net volume of growing stock on timberland totaled 7.5 billion cubic feet in 2003, triple the 2.5 billion cubic feet estimated during the 1950 inventory. A complete report of the final results of the fifth inventory of Indiana's forest resources will be published later as a companion to this report.
