Description: Forest survey Unit No. 6 in north Alabama embraces 10 counties that lie almost exclusively in the watershed of the Tennessee River (fig. 2). The unit, containing 4,595,900 acres, extends entirely across the northern part of the State, with its southern boundary roughly parallel to, and about 50 miles south of, the Tennessee State line. The Tennessee River, which enters the unit in the northeast corner and flows through it for 200 miles before swinging northward to enter Tennessee, is highly important to the economy of this area, as it is under intensive development by the Tennessee Valley Authority. flood control, power development, inland waterway transportation, production of fertilizer, soil conservation, and the encouragement of industrial development are some of the major objectives. Abundant power and water-transportation facilities should increase industrialization, but at present agriculture predominates; in 1035 three-fourths of the unit was in farms. Forest land, including that in 1935 three-fourths of the unit was in farms, occupied 47 percent of the land area at the time of the survey in 1936.
