    The Southern Forest Resource Assessment was initiated in the spring of 1999 to address broad questions concerning the status, trends, and possible future of southern forests. The overall objective of the assessment was to develop a thorough and objective description of forest conditions and trends in the South, and to present it in a way that would help the public understand a complex and dynamic resource. Findings of the assessment highlight the forces of change at work in southern forests and potential ecological and economic implications.
