Pennsylvania is a forested state--the very name means "Penn's woods". Despite being the sixth most populous state in the country, forests are the dominant land-cover type in in Pennsylvania. Today approximately 60% of the commonwealth is forested, and Pennsylvania leads the nation in hardwood growing stock volume (Widmann 1995).
