Upland inhabitants are primarily poor farming families with insecure land tenure. Subsistence food production rather than forestry is their over- Forests were cleared extensively for agriculture, timber production, fuelwood, and urban expansion (Whitney ), such that forest cover reached its nadir in the early 20th century. According to US Census records, of the total acreage of land in farms in the eastern United States, less than 10 percent was reported as nonpastured woodland in   FORESTRY. FORESTRY. Forestry is the scientific management of forests for the production of lumber and other resources.
