The Relation of Stand Composition to Crop Security -- Report of the Committee on Silviculture
Abstract:The committee report points out that there are two schools of thought regarding the question of the relation of stand composition to crop security. One school believes foresters should attempt to copy nature. The other believes nature can be improved upon and that mixtures can be developed which are more profitable and safer than those occurring under natural conditions. The committee believes that the climax forest always should be used as guide to a workable combination of species hut that modification of these may be made to yield the greatest return and still insure crop security. The committee report is followed by a statement prepared by Dr. J. S. Boyce, who indorses the pathological principles outlined in the report.
