More Practical Aid and Information: The Sine Qua Non for Private Forestry Development in the Southern Pine Region
Abstract:Progress of forestry in the South will be slow until more practical information and aid is offered the owners of forest land. General suggestions and plans must be replaced with concrete programs based on studies of all the factors affecting the handling of a specific property. Aid in attaining improved and diversified utilization is more urgently needed than high powered, abstruse silviculture which the owner can neither understand nor apply. Coming from a man whose experience and knowledge of the possibilities and limitations of southern pine forestry are equaled by those of very few other foresters, these arguments are significant of why forestry has lagged in the past and of what the forester must be able to furnish to put it into effect.
