Farm Forestry Profits in Virginia
Abstract:The author describes the careless and insufficiently remunerative disposal of timber on the extensive private farm woodlands oi Virginia and recommends a strict land utilization policy and the development oi stable markets as a solution to the problem oi making farm forestry more profitable. If the farmer is to gain satisfactory results in growing trees on land which cannot be profitably cultivated, he must first learn to grow good trees of the species best suited to the soil and to available markets. There, of course, arises the timberland taxation question and the need for its amelioration. The situation presented might easily be applied to states other than Virginia.
