Jocassee ecosystem diversity to be researched
Although forests in Jocassee Gorges appear pristine, most of the property has been clear cut or selectively logged several times since the late 1800s. Many commercial forest industries owned Jocassee Gorges before its purchase by the S.C. Department of Natural Resources, and the property has supplied timber to build factories, houses and even sewing machine cabinets. A primary objective of DNR is to enhance and restore forests native to Jocassee Gorges. But what forest types would occupy Jocassee Gorges today had the property not been logged?
