The Coastal Plain Forest-Farming Project in Atkinson County, Georgia

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

The first forest-farming project in Georgia was established in 1940 and included 211,000 acres in the heart of the naval-stores belt. Here the forests were badly run down and had not previously been regarded by farmers as a major resource in spite of the fact that 85 per cent of the area is in woods and 79 per cent of this on farms. After two years of successful operation, described in detail in this article, the project has materially improved the condition of the forests and greatly increased the income therefrom on the farms of the 59 cooperators, all of whom are enthusiastic in its support.
