The use of numerous small publicly owned demonstration forests located in communities where woodlands are or could be of importance in farm economy is recommended based on a farm forestry project being developed in Wisconsin. Educational techniques center around repeated timber harvest field days, featuring, among other factors, the harvesting of current increment, and net hourly wages, instead of income per acre, too long used, in the author's opinion, for appraising the productive value of farm woods. A pattern for resolving an old conflict between education and service is suggested.
