$29.50 plus tax (Refund Policy)


For some strange reason or other, foresters as a group seem to show no decided inclination to invest in timber producing properties. Undoubtedly there are many reasons for this. Perhaps foresters know too well the hazards of fire, of insects and fnngi, and of the heavy tax load to which forest properties are subjected. It is refreshing, therefore, to find a forester willing to invest his savings in a forest property. It is still more refreshing to find that this investment does not seem to have "turned sour." There are few things that would so favorably affect private forestry as a large nnmber of followers of the excellent example set by Mr. Hall.
