Pine forests in my area were planted as a make work project in the 1930's on state land. They are harvested for phone poles, paper pulp, and lumber and replanted with pole pines again. There is also a booming hardwood industry here with plenty of old growth native cherry maple, oak and ash ect. Maple syrup is also harvested here on a hobby or small farm scale.
