DescriptionMany social and economic institutions in the Southern Appalachians depend on the various benefits provided by its forests, such as abundant, high-quality timber; plentiful and diverse fish and wildlife; extensive recreational opportunities; and, a variety of nontimber forest products. These benefits take on added value because of their proximity to human population centres and the strong social and cultural heritage of rural and indigenous populations. This region is experiencing increasing pressure to provide this wide diversity of resource values to millions of people. The result of this work can be seen at the Forest Encyclopedia website.
