Abstract

Georgia contains the largest area of forest cover in the South with 24.8 million acres, accounting for 67 percent of the State’s land area (table 1). The forest area has remained relatively stable over the last 50 years. Commercial timberland area (land available for production of forest products) comprises >98 percent of the total forest land area. The remaining area is reserved forest land where harvesting is prohibited by law.
