DescriptionFollowing tests in the coastal plain and Piedmont of Georgia (Moore et al. 1960), a procedure was developed and used to assess browse resources in 21 counties of north Georgia involving a total land area of approximately 4 million acres (fig. 1). Although the Forest Survey is designed primarily to yield information on timber, it also provides an excellent sampling vehicle for measuring other forest resources. For example, West Virginia, working with the Northeastern Forest Experiment Station, obtained a statewide habitat map which has been of great value in managing wildlife resources (Wilson 1950). Similarly, Forest Survey teams at the Southern Station have sampled hydrologic conditions on a trial basis in Arkansas. Work in the Central States has been concurrent with our study (Ehrenreich 1962), and extensive sampling of deer forage resources has been completed.
