The Forest Survey in the Bottomland Hardwoods of the Mississippi Delta
Abstract:A current major project of interest to foresters and lumbermen, especially those concerned with the economics of the forest industries, is the forest survey now being pushed so energetically by the Forest Service in several regions. The hardwoods have always received less attention than the conifers. It is gratifying, therefore, that this important group is to be included so early. Mr. Lentz describes the problems peculiar to the hardwood survey and offers classifications of sites and types. Mr. Putnam's comments which follow the principal paper enlarge upon and further clarify some of Mr. Lentz' statements.
