An Estate Forestry Project
In September, 1932, the New York and New England Sections of the Society held a joint meeting in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., and the vicinity. On the afternoon of the second day the hundred odd members in attendance were received informally by Franklin D. Roosevelt, then Governor of New York, at his home in Hyde Park. In his talk to them he stressed the difficulties confronting a small forest owner like himself whose acreage is too limited to permit the overhead cost of a full-time forest manager who would be competent to plan, and direct the cultural and cutting operations and at the same time could keep in touch with the timber and wood markets so as to be able to place to the best financial advantage the annual production from the property. He suggested the possibility of a coöperative organization whereby a group of forest owners of his class might pool their interests, bringing together under one management a sufficiently large acreage to justify the fixed minimum overhead charge of competent supervision. Since then the N.Y. State College of Forestry has been working on the idea. It has given out a succession of news releases reporting the progress it has been making. The two authors of this article have had six or seven years' experience along similar lines in southern New Hampshire. Their conclusions as to what form of organization is practicable, and how to go about developing it, should be of value to foresters in other forest regions where the ownership is comparably subdivided.
