In the late 1960s foresters in the South set out to apply intensive practices and high technology to create and manage a very productive domesticated forest. This Third Forest was to succeed the second-growth stands which became established on abandoned fields and cut over sites that had once supported old-growth pine. During more than a decade, management has intensified and many new technologies have been developed. The South is producing more wood than ever before, but if the future demands are to be met the technologies must be further refined and management must become even more intense.
