The longleaf-slash pine area, which is the seat of the naval stores industry, is characterized by forests of longleaf and slash pine, with a varying admixture of hardwoods, cypress, loblolly, and other pines. In the two pine-hardwood subregions the forests, are chiefly loblolly and shortleaf pines with a considerable volume of intermixed hardwoods, although in parts of southeastern Texas and,south- western Louisiana longleaf pine is also important from a production,standpoint.
