Cutting Fuel Wood at a Profit
Abstract:Farm woodlots are of vast importance because of their large aggregate acreage, their relative accessibility, and the fact that they usually contain valnable hardwood. In this article, the author, signally successful in introducing forestry to farm woodlots owners, describes his method of approach. He has found that the average farmer fears that forestry practice does not pay; he, therefore, induces the farmer to keep a record of costs and makes him a second visit to discuss results. The second visit is the pivotal point of his success.
