$29.50 plus tax (Refund Policy)


Land use in the Lake States has always been of interest to foresters, and the cut-over lands of this region are held up as bad examples of unwise lumbering and improper later use. The author of this article is a recognized authority on land economics. He discusses here some of the problems caused by sub-marginal lands--in large part cut-over lands--and offers some fundamental and vital suggestions for restoring non-productive lands to the tax list. Forestry plays an important part in his programs. "It is tree growth or nothing as far as the Lake States are concerned."
