Description: An area of about 8 million acres in southwest Alabama, extending from the Gulf of Mexico northward into the western edge of the Black Belt Prairie, includes two Forest survey Unites: Alabama #1 (the southern part of the area, with Covington, Escambia, Baldwin, Mobile, and Washington Counties), and Alabama #2 (the northern part, with Sumter, Coctaw, Marengo, Wilcox, Clark, Monroe, and Conecuh Counties). These two unites, together, constitute a source of supply for Mobile, an important wood-using center. The southern part of the area, where turpentine and rosin are produced, is in the "naval stores belt": and the northern part is in the "pine-hardwood region east of the Mississippi River." Approximately 71 percent of the land is forested (table 1) with various southern hardwoods, cypress, and longleaf, slash, loblolly, and other pines.
