In the second-growth longleaf and slash pine forests of the Sonth, naval stores production is superior to saw-timber production. The production of the former requires a specialized form of management, the features of which the author describes. The multiple utilization afforded by naval stores, saw-timber, and possibly also pulpwood from the same stands, combined with cheap operation and climate that favors rapid growth, make the southern pineries seem a particularly attractive opportunity for industrial forestry.
