2015 FIA Fact Sheet for Mississippi Forestland Net volume increased approximately 16% from 2006 to 2015 29.7 to 34.3 billion cubic feet Average annual net growth 1.9 billion cubic feet Average annual mortality 372 million cubic feet Average annual harvest 970 million cubic feet Surplus growth of 558 million cubic annually from 2006 - 2015

2015 FIA Fact Sheet for Mississippi Forestland Ratio of Growth : Mortality Harvest 2.0 The data indicates that “Mississippi is growing more trees than arebeing removed through conversion or harvest” (Oswalt, 2016).
