Abstract:There is a surprisingly general misconception, even among foresters, that forestry in the Central States constitutes little more than the proper management of farmwoods. The dominance of agriculture throughout the "Corn Belt" and the fact that our main transcontinental railroads and highways traverse this rich agricultural section have created the impression that the terms "Corn Belt" and "Central States" are synonymous. The author here interestingly considers the economic, silvicultural and utilization problems peculiar to the farmwoods of this region.
