Description: The geographic region we call the Northeast and Midwest stretches from Maine to Minnesota, south to Missouri, and east to Maryland and the District of Columbia. Nearly half of the Nation's population lives here on slightly less than 20 percent of the Nation's land area. Representing one of the largest concentrations of privately owned forests in the world, more than 75 percent, about 128 million acres, is in private ownership. Trees and forests are fundamental to the region's environmental, social, and economic health. Clean water, wildlife, rich soils, and life-giving vegetation are due in large measure to healthy forests and trees. Forests protect drinking water, filter pollutants, and hold water in forest soils, where it gradually makes its way to lakes, rivers, and underground stores.
