Economic and Commercial Policies Necessary for Successful Private Forestry

Buy Article:

$29.50 plus tax (Refund Policy)


The lumber industry is prepared to accept the ordinary risks of business, but the writer, actively interested in promoting private forestry, reports here that it is disturbed by such unnecessary risks as unfair, discriminatory, and unduly burdensome taxes; the inconsistency of public agencies in demanding forestry practices yet discouraging the use of the products these practices are intended to grow; and the unfair use of propaganda designed to discredit the industry. The recognition of hazards is the first step toward their removal. If private enterprises would recognize that it must do everything reasonably practical to advance private forestry and if the public agencies concerned with the forests would recognize equally that everything they say or do to create or stimulate insecurity and instability in forest industries is a backward step, private forestry, which has gone ahead despite man-made handicaps, would progress more rapidly.
