    Came across this and found it rather fascinating. Scroll thru the graphic map and its packed with interesting land useage facts and figures.

    80% of the population lives on 3.6% of the land.

    41% of land use involves livestock.

    private land ownership, weyerhauser owns 2.3% of total contiguous forest lands.

    Reveals a lot about underlying regional differences in politics and perspectives.

    That was a very interesting graphic. Thanks for sharing. IMHO, that kind of thing is what makes the internet truly useful.
