Progress and Development of the Prairie States Forestry Project
Abstract:Over five years have passed since President Roosevelt officially launched, by Executive Order, the program of shelterbelt planting in the Plains States of North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas. The acceptance by the U.S. Forest Service of the administrative responsibility for this program, first known as the Shelterbelt Project, was a source of genuine concern to many foresters and others, who entertained considerable doubt as to its feasibility. A few foresters, however, particularly Plains foresters, saw many possibilities in this new undertaking. Developments to date, in the main, indicate that the program has been very successful.
