Forest Resources

pine tree

More than 25,000 square miles of forests represent nearly half of Florida's land area. These trees provide us with wood and fiber products.

Approximately 650 million cubic feet of wood is harvested annually from sustainably managed forests. For information about sustainable agriculture, see Sustainable Living: Agriculture.

Florida’s forests also support outdoor recreational opportunities and provide important environmental services such as wildlife habitat, biodiversity and clean water. For more information, see Forests & Uplands.
