      Younger pine trees, which have been thinned, were the hardest hit on these initial observations.

      COLUMBIA, S.C. (WACH) -- State Forester Gene Kodama will make a disaster declaration reflecting mounting losses in timber due to the recent ice storm Wednesday at 1:45 pm at the State House.

      Younger pine trees, which have been thinned, were the hardest hit on these initial observations.

      South Carolina's 13-million acres of privately-owned forestland supports the state's economy by approximately 17 billion dollars annually.
