Summary Over half (56 percent) of America's private forests are privately owned and provide a vast array of public goods and services, such as clean water, timber, wildlife habitat, and recreational opportunities. These critical benefits are being affected by increased housing density in areas across the country. This report estimates that housing density will increase on more than 57 million acres of America's private rural forests from 2000 to 2030. In many areas, the impacts of increased housing density are likely to be exacerbated by additional threats such as wildfire, insect pests and diseases, and air pollution.
