Description: Southeast Alabama (Forest survey Unit Alabam No. 3) has long been one of the principal agricultural areas of the deep South. since its forests, however, are almost as extensive as its fields, a recent study has been made of the forest resources and wood-products industries of this area to determine how important the yare and how their usefulness may be increased. the area, which includes 21 counties with an aggregate of 9 million acres in the southeast part of the State, extends from the Florida boundary line northward to about the middle of the State, and from Georgia line westward to the west side of Dallas County (see map, fig. 1). Approximately 47 percent of the land (table 1) is forested with various southern pines, hardwoods, and cypress. More than three-fourths of the total population of 709,000 (1930 Census) is classed as rural; whereas less than one-fourth of the population is urban, residing in Montgomery (the largest city and State Capitol), Selma, Dothan, Phoenix City, and other towns of 2,500 or more.
