Timber production in the southern US as a percentage of overall US production is at an all-time high (Smith et al. 2009). This can be attributed to the fact that most of the ground is privately owned, and there is a large plantation component in this area. This trend will likely continue into the near and long-term future given the unlikelihood of easing stricter Governmental policies in the western US.
