The Small Mill--Its Awakening and Development
Abstract:More than one-half of the lumber production of the South comes from small more or less portable mills. A mill may be moved and set up for as little as 200,000 board feet. Most of the timber is second growth and comes from the cut-over lands of past large operators though more commonly from farmers' woodlots. Most of it is hardly ripe for the saw. The small mill has distinct advantages which assure its continuance as an important factor in the lumber industry; it also has decided disadvantages which in the aggregate tend to demoralize lumber markets. The author's discussion of these factors from a lumberman's standpoint indicates what problems the forester has to contend with to advance the practice of forestry on small holdings.
