The Land Use Problems in the South
Abstract:That the Federal Farm Board is cognizant of forest taxation problems and of the place of forestry in a program of intelligent land utilization is clearly indicated in Mr. Williams' comprehensive and constructive review of the land-use situation in the South. He discusses farming changes that affect land abandonment; sets forth the problem of declining timber production and how the forest tax problem is related to the comparative desirability of public and private ownership; the strengthening of surveys and studies to determine facts as a basis for an intelligent land policy, and the enlightenment of public sentiment. Mr. Williams recommends the set up of state planning commissions, the revision of tax systems, land classification in distressed areas and the public acquisition of marginal lands.
