Productive Woodlands--A Needed Support for Southern Farms
Abstract:The author discusses the land-use possibilities of the cutover hill sections of the South as typified by Randolph County, Alabama, and reports on a sampling of farmers' forest practices and plans. His conclusion is that maximum service to the people in such areas will be rendered, not by taking this land for state and national forests, but rather by helping the owners to grow timber with adequate fire protection, payments or loans for reforestation, and assistance in timber marketing.
