    Description

    The forests of the Gulf Coastal Region provide the basis for its economic well-being. Because of the semitropical climate, abundant rainfall and availing topography, the nation's richest plant communities thrive. These forests are predominately privately owned. Millions of private landowners are committed to managing their forests for a broad array of values which include a sustainable wood supply, wildlife habitat, clean water and forest recreation such as hunting and fishing. The Region's forests are dynamic ecosystems, capable of supplying, over the long term with good stewardship, the myriad of products and services we have come to rely upon as the mainstay of the economy.
