    Description

    Forest area data were examined from the most recent surveys of the 12 Southern States by the Forest Inventory and Analysis units of the USDA Forest Service. From 1977 to 1985, forest industry acreage in the South has continued to increase, miscellaneous private acreage has increased at a slower rate, and farm forest acreage has continued to drop sharply. During the same period, the largest area changes among cover types have occurred in pine types. Area in natural pine has decreased 18 percent, and planted pine area has increased by 41 percent.
