The Effects of the Hurricane Upon New England Forests
In September New England was swept by a hurricane of unprecedented intensity and destructiveness. Although the greatest loss of life and the most spectacular property damage occurred along the New England Coast, the most lasting scars were made on the forests of the region. The salvaging of the some 4 billion feet of wind-thrown timber is a gigantic task. Some of the methods proposed for accomplishing the task and some of the problems involved in their execution are described by the author of the following article. It seems clear that despite the fact that the forest damage was confined to New England, the effects of the damage will be felt over the length and breadth of the Nation.
