Forest Resources Data and Information

Demands on the forest and natural resources are increasing for forest products, recreation, water quality, and ecological and wildlife habitat enhancement.  Added to these demands are the pressures from human population growth as developments encroach and interface with the forest resources. 

South Carolina is richly blessed with an abundance and diversity of forest landscapes and habitats that adds to the quality of life.  The following publications are provided to offer a factual reference of the status of the forest and natural resources in South Carolina and the Southeast.  You will find links to other sites to build upon your knowledge and understanding of the natural resources we often take for granted.
