Alabama Economic Impact Reports*

Alabama's forest encompasses a wide range of ecological conditions ranging from mountainous terrain in the northern reaches of the state to coastal plains in the south. The forest provides important habitat that contributes to the rich biological diversity of both flora and fauna found in the state. While Alabama’s forests produce a wide range of services that are essential to wildlife and human well-being, they support a forest products industry that makes an important contribution to the state’s economy by supplying wood products, employment, income, and tax revenue.
