This study has detected the type, direction and power of the relations between the pure hair goat population and forest resources in different geographical regions of Turkey. Simple and multiple linear regression and correlation methods among parametric relation analysis techniques have been used as research methods. The following has been determined as a result of the research conducted: the power, direction and statistical functions of the relations between pure hair goats and forests in Turkey vary according to the geographical regions; the power direction and functions of these relations are affected by the type of forest administrations, their level of efficiency and the closure of the forest land; the relation which used to be very strong in the Aegean Region in the west of Turkey and in the Southeastern Anatolian and Eastern Anatolian Regions in the east of Turkey, is no longer so strong; the relation status which used to be very strong in the past in the Mediterranean Region still preserves its status (vertical bar R vertical bar 1) congruent to 1); the relation between pure hair goats and forests which were not considered important in the past in the Marmara and Black Sea regions have attained a significant importance today (0.53
