Can Idle Land be Converted into Continuous Grazing Areas?
Abstract:The general proposition that all land too poor for profitable agriculture should be converted into forests may be accepted too readily. Forestry may not be the wisest use. The author believes that some of such land may be more profitably converted into grazing lands and offers a suggestion for applying the principles of forest taxation to encourage such use.
