The Role of Forest Products in Railroad Revenue

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

The author discusses the interdependence between the railroads and the forest industries, the railroads looking to the forest for revenue-producing tonnage and the forest industries upon the railroads for markets for cross ties and other products. He also shows how the prosperity of the railroads in forested sections rises and falls with exploitation and depletion of timber tributary to their lines, and how second-growth in some cases has been the means of reviving forest products tonnage.
