When we look across the vast stretches of agricultural acreage in Northwest Ohio, it would be easy to conclude that Ohio is mostly farmland today, with very little of the woods or forests that used to cover the landscape. That would be incorrect. The Buckeye State of 2012 is more than 30 percent forested, compared to a mere 12 percent forest in the early part of the 20th Century. Over the past 80 years, the Division of Forestry of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources has planted more than a half billion trees across the state. Private landowners and commercial operations have added millions more.
