Records of managed woodlands on 89 farms covering variable periods up to six years are summarized on an annual basis for high, medium, and low income groups. The methods used in obtaining these records are described and the results interpreted. It is held that to the owner-operator the return on the farmer's labor is the most significant measure of success in woodland operations. The author also stresses the need for more information on the financial aspects of farm management. A comment is attached in which suggestions are offered for presenting the author's figures in other significant arrangements.
