Abstract North Carolinas forests cover 18.6 million acres, or about 60 percent of the states land area. The majority of the states forested land, some 14.2 million acres, is in non-industrial private ownership, while approximately 1.1 million acres are in national forests. Forestry is the states second most important industry, providing 180,000 jobs and producing $23 billion in annual revenue. North Carolinas forests are also prized for their scenic beauty, supporting tourism and outdoor recreation, and providing wildlife habitat from the Appalachian Mountains to the lowlands of the Atlantic Coastal Plain. Major forest types in the state include oak-hickory, loblolly-shortleaf pine, oak-pine, and oak-gum-cypress. Longleaf-slash pine forests, historically much more widespread, now comprise only 2 percent of the states forests.
