The Hitchiti Forest Research Center was established in 1946 by the Forest Service, USDA, to find ways and means of producing more wood in the depleted forests of lower Piedmont Georgia, Alabama, and South Carolina. Sixty percent of the 18-1/2 million-acre territory is in forest. The forest consists principally of even-aged stands of loblolly pine on the uplands and a mixture of oaks, hickories, yellow-poplar, and other hardwoods on the moist sites.
