Intensive Forestry Projects Under the Provisions of the Cooperative Farm Forestry Act
Abstract:Since many professional foresters have not had an opportunity to become familiar with the intensive forestry project phase of the program that is being developed under the provisions of the Cooperative Farm Forestry (Norris-Doxey) Act, it may be helpful to give some of the background of these projects and review some of the present thinking in regard to their establishment and operation. In order to conform closely with approved policies and procedures, much of the material in this article is either adapted or taken verbatum from existing statements issued by the Farm Forestry Committee of the Department of Agriculture and the Soil Conservation Service. It is presented primarily for the general information of foresters who have not been working closely with the Cooperative Farm Forestry program.
