Cooperative Woodland Management and Marketing--An Essential Part of a Complete Land-Use Program
Abstract:Experience with forestry cooperatives since 1913, and particularly during the last 6 years, indicates a few basic principles that must be observed if they are to be successful. These principles are discussed briefly, with special reference to the situation in the areas served by the Otsego Forest Products Cooperative Association and the West Virginia Forest Products Association, and the essential activities of a typical cooperative are presented in some detail. The author concludes that cooperatives are needed to supply skillful and practical service to owners in the management of forest lands and the marketing of forest products, particularly in the supervision of the cutting and logging operations; and that they are consequently an essential part of a complete land-use program.
