Alabama Timberland Now Reaches Over 23 Million Acres

February 17, 2016

In 2014, Alabama timberland acreage increased from 22 million acres to an all-time high of 23 million, according to Service Forest Inventory & Analysis (FIA) data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest.

“That million acres of growth didn’t just happen,” said Greg Pate, Alabama Forestry Commission (AFC) state forester. “We’ve seen a steady growth in Alabama’s timberland in the past 15 years.”

Alabama’s forests are the third largest in America, behind only Oregon and Georgia. Timber acreage covers 69 percent of Alabama’s total area, Pate said.

“Timber is a vital, renewable resource in Alabama,” said Rick Oates, Alabama Farmers Federation Forestry Division director. “This study shows landowners are successfully managing our forests with the future in mind.”

Despite perceptions that trees and forests are vanishing in Alabama, FIA data show timber growth now exceeds the volume of timber harvested annually, Oates said. read more at
