"This beautiful district is lush with trees, from which these citizens supply our lumber and paper. The people of District 7 are hardworking and down-to-earth."
―Description from The Hunger Games: Tribute Guide[src]

District 7 is one of the thirteen districts of Panem. It's hinted that it is a middle-class district, like Districts 3, 6, and 8. District 7 provides lumber for the Capitol, and its people are known to be good with axes. District 7 is apparently covered with large portions of forest and has a dam nearby the district.

District 7 tributes, 74th Hunger Games

Everyday life

Nothing is mentioned about the lives of the citizens from District 7. However, Katniss Everdeen notes that Johanna Mason, being from District 7, probably threw and used axes since she was a toddler. This suggests that most citizens from District 7 begin working with axes at an early age, probably in the forests that surround the district, chopping down the trees for their district's industry. District 7 is possibly a wealthier district which can hint that life is easier there.
