Abstract:Things looked bad in the path of the New England hurricane in 1938. First thought was, how much and what can be salvaged out of the wreckage. Mainly the thinking had to do with timber and other property. But this article points out that in addition to the property salvage other gains resulted. The value of the forest to the people was forcibly brought home. Different and in some cases new ideas regarding cutting practices, log grading, manufacture, lumber piling, marketing, etc., developed out of the hurricane experience. The author states that "an increasing number of industries and individual timberland owners will consider that bad management of the forest resources belongs in the same category with disease."
