    Description

    Arkansas has beautiful forest lands totaling 18.3 million acres. In fact, Arkansas is over 50 percent forested, which is much higher than the United States average of 21 percent (fig. 1). Many of Arkansas' forested areas are timberlands or commercial forests, meaning that each acre can produce a minimum of 20 ft3 of wood volume per year. Lower percentages were noted for woodland forests (other than timberlands) in Arkasas compared with the Unitd States averages. These lands have provided Arkansans with employment, areas for recreation, scenic beauty, and opportunities for investments.
