Forestry for the Central Corn-belt Farmer
Abstract:Iowa and other Central states have extensive areas of land too poor for farming but well suited to growing trees. The author believes that if these states, which have to import nearly all of their wood needs, would afforest their waste lands they would increase local values and at the same time develop a reliable source of forest products for local requirements. What the author says of this region points to the urgent need of intensive land ntilization surveys in each state.
