Forestry at Elizabeth, Louisiana
Abstract:How a southern lumber company in the longleaf pine belt came to consider forestry, why it adopted it, and what it expects from it, is here described by one of its officials. Like many other southern pine operators, faced with serious cut-over land problems, this company felt that the future of logged-off lands lay in agriculture uses and it went ahead vigorously to develop the possibilities, only to meet with failure. The company now reforests its cut-over lands by artificial means and manages them for pulpwood production. Although Mr. Smith feels that forestry on a large scale is a function for the federal and state governments, he is convinced that, on a smaller scale and for special purposes, it is feasible in the longleaf pine region for private capital.
