DescriptionThis report presents 1967 forest resource statistics for the Hill Country-Ohio's portion of Appalachia. The Hill Country comprises 28 counties, which were divided into three geographic sampling units for this survey. The Hill Country of the 1952 Ohio forest survey contained 26 of these counties. The additional Appalachia counties are Brown and Clermont in the South-Central Geographic Unit. The Southeastern and East-Central Units are the same as they were in the first survey. To facilitate making comparisons between inventories, we have adjusted 1952 Hill Country data to include Brown and Clermont Counties. The resurvey of Ohio forests is part of the nationwide program to maintain a current inventory of our timber resources, as authorized by the McSweeney-McNary Forest Research Act of 1928. Because forestry is so important in the Hill Country, the resurvey there was intensified to obtain more precise county information. The appropriation of $75,000 by the Ohio State Legislature made the intensification possible. The Division of Forestry and Reclamation of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources and the U.S.D.A. Forest Service planned the resurvey. Carl E. Mayer, project leader, directed the resurvey. Joseph E. Barnard was in charge of computing and tabulating all inventory data, including those for the Wayne National Forest, which were collected by personnel of the Eastern Region of the U.S.D.A. Forest Service. Members of the Northeastern Forest Experiment Station's survey unit collected the basic inventory data for all lands outside the Wayne National Forest. With the assistance of Division of Forestry and Reclamation personnel, they collected timber cut and timber products output data. The field work was completed in December 1967. We acknowledge, with special thanks the cooperation of the Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service, who provided up-to-date aerial photographs for use in the resurvey.
