Effective Extension Procedure for the Conservative Cutting of Pulpwood on Small Woodland Areas
Abstract:Perhaps the methods of reaching the farmer now in use by extension foresters and largely carried over from those used by agriculturists are not adapted to the forest crop and to the farm forest problem. A new method of attacking the problem is here discussed. It consists of first securing the co[odiaeresis]peration of the buyers of forest products by pointing out to them that it is in their own interest to have farmers practice forestry. The advantages of using forestry principles in timber cutting are pointed out to both business men and farmers and finally the enforcement problem is handed over to the timber buyers for they alone can apply the most powerful of all influences, economic pressure. The presentation is based on an actual use of the method in pulpwood cutting and not on theoretical considerations. The author does not claim that any single part of the method is original. He does hope that this may influence others to attempt the development and use of new methods in forest extension.
