    Description

    The total amount of forest land in Louisiana is virtually the same today as it was a decade ago. But its distribution has changed noticeably. In the Delta, for example, forest acreage is still declining; between 1954 and 1964, it dropped some 7 percent, thus closely paralleling trends in the Delta sections of neighboring Arkansas and Mississippi. Outside the Delta, forest acreage has increased some 3 percent since 1954. Modest losses in the southeast and southwest regions have been overshadowed by woodland expansion in the northwest.
