Abstract Louisianas forests cover 13.8 million acres, nearly half of the states land area. The majority of the states forested land, some 10 million acres, is in non-industrial private ownership, while approximately 603,500 acres are in national forests. Louisianas forests are prized for their scenic beauty, supporting tourism and outdoor recreation and providing wildlife habitat throughout the state. Major forest types in Louisiana include oak-hickory, loblolly and shortleaf pine, longleaf and slash pine, mixed oak-pine, and oak-gum-cypress. Other minor types account for approximately 3% of the forest.
