The Woodpile Dwindles

Record #:
More than two-thirds of North Carolina is covered by forests, but the state could face a severe timber shortage in less than twenty-five years because of a lack of forest maintenance. There are issues with small landowners, who own almost eight-percent of the state’s commercial timberland. Quality trees are cut for sale but are not replanted after harvesting, leading to under stocked, deteriorating timberland.
