DescriptionThe region' covered by the Forest Survey in the lower South embraces the commercially timbered areas of the Gulf States, Georgia, and parts of Arkansas, Oklahoma, Nissouri, Tennessee, and Kentucky. 17 This region is divided into four subregions, the longleaf-slash pine, the delta-hardwoods, "and two pine-hardwood areas, 'east and west. The longleaf-slash pine area, which is the seat of the naval stores industry, is characterized by forests of longleaf and slash pine, with a varying admixture of hardwoods, cypress, loblolly, and other pines. In the two pine-hardwood subregions the forests, are chiefly loblolly and shortleaf pines with a considerable volume of intermixed hardwoods, although in parts of southeastern Texas and,south- western Louisiana longleaf pine is also important from a production,standpoint. The forests of the Mississippi River bottoms are almost entirely hardwoods.
