Results of the combined 2001 and 2002 annual forest inventories of North Dakota show over 824 thousand acres of forest land. There are an estimated 744 million cubic feet of all live tree volume, or approximately 902 cubic feet per acre of forest land. Timberland totals 696 million acres with an estimated 409 million cubic feet of growing-stock volume, or approximately 588 cubic feet per acre of timberland. All live aboveground tree biomass on timberland is estimated at 20 million dry tons or approximately 29 tons per acre of timberland. Known pests in North Dakota forests include yellow-headed spruce sawfly, forest tent caterpillar, ash borer, and ash bark beetles.
