Ninety-five percent of the forest area of the eastern states is privately-owned. Including accessible lands of high quality, these private holdings offer an excellent opportunity for the practice of silviculture and for gathering documentary evidence as to the financial practicability of forestry. It has long been recognized that the use of improper methods prevent obtaining adequate returns from woodland, and so three years ago the New Jersey Department of Conservation and Development began providing an intensive type of assistance in woods management in an effort to find an answer to the specific question, "Does private forestry pay in New Jersey?"
