Land Classification

The Land Classification Map shows the Forestlands and the Alienable and Disposable (A and D) areas of Pinamalayan as delineated by DENR. The municipality has three Timberland areas. The two largest are found at its western periphery and a portion of Barangay Sabang is located within them. The other Timberland area, which the municipality shares with Pola, is located at its northeastern boundary. This is located within Barangays Guinhawa and Banilad.  The rest of the municipality is alienable and disposable.

No areas of the National Integrated Protected Areas System (NIPAS) are designated as Alienable and Disposable. Located within A and D Lands, however, are a number of other Environmentally Critical Areas (Proclamation 2146). These comprise sections of the municipality that have slopes greater than 50 percent, flood prone areas and those covered by the Strategic Agriculture and Fisheries Development Zone.
