Abstract Kentuckys forests cover more than 12.6 million acres, almost half of the states land area. The majority of the states forested land, some 11.2 million acres, is in non-industrial private ownership, while approximately 699,000 acres are in national forest. Forestry is an important industry in Kentucky, providing 29,400 jobs and producing $468 million in annual revenue. Kentuckys forests are also prized for their scenic beauty, supporting tourism and outdoor recreation and providing wildlife habitat from the Appalachian Mountains in the east to the Mississippi Valley in the west. Major forest types in the state include oak-hickory, pine, and mixed oak-pine. Other hardwoods comprise 11% of the states forests.
