DescriptionThe South is blessed with abundant and diverse forest resources. Today, forests cover approximately 215 million acres in the South, which represents 29 percent of the forest land in the United States (Conner and Hartsell 2002). Maintaining the productivity of these forests is essential to the economic, environmental, and social well being of the South and the Nation. The forest products industry ranks among the top industries in most Southern States and is the largest industry in several. The wood products sector contributed 770,000 direct jobs and over $120 billion in total industry output in 1997 (Abt and others 2002).
