The Place of Forestry in the New Agricultural Conservation Program
Abstract:The new Agricultural Conservation Program, replacing the invalidated A.A.A., may provide a major stimulant to farm forestry. This is of especial significance in the Northeast, where farm woodlands constitute such an important element in rural economy. Planting of forest trees has already been recognized as a basis for federal aid under the new act. Fencing of woodland against grazing and silvicultural measures for forest improvement have been recommended for payments by some of the Northeastern states. Specifications to cover payments for forest improvement practice are proposed by the author.
