Writing to a JTextArea

Hello i am stuck on a simple problem and was wondering if somebody may know the answer. I have created a JTextarea and want to write some statistics to it. These will change however very regularly and i was wondering how to clear the JTextarea and write the new statistics to it as opposed to appending to the previous ones.
Thanks for your time
