Description: This report summarizes timber resource statistics for the 20 counties in eastern Washington. The inventory sampled all private and public lands except those administered by the National Forest System in 2001, and those that were reserved from management for wood products. Area information for parks and other reserves was obtained directly from the organizations managing these areas. Statistical tables provide estimates of land area, timber volume, growth, mortality, and harvest for eastern Washington as a= whole. Estimated area of forest on non-national forest land was 4.9 million acres, and net volume of growing stock on timberland was 8.7 billion cubic feet. Estimated annual growth on non-national forest timberland from 1990 to 2001 was 203 million cubic feet; average annual mortality was 84 million cubic feet; average annual harvest was 288 million cubic feet.
