1952 set a new record for forest and shelterbelt planting. During this year (July 1, 1951 to June 30, 1952) the state foresters and other reporting agencies reported at total of 522,935 acres planted; an increase of 66,567 acres (15 percent) over the 1951 figure; and 3,894 acres above the previous record set in 1940. The year's accomplishment by ownership classes is as follows: The federal government planted almost 2,800 acres more of its own land than it did in 1951--an increase of 5 percent above 1951. The states and other public agencies (non-federal) planted almost 18,800 acres more of their land--an increase of 43 percent above 1951. The private landowners planted nearly 44,900 acres more of their land--an increase of approximately 12 percent above 1951. In six states private land planting decreased about 29,000 acres, mostly for want of planting stock, rather than for want of the wish to plant. In 17 States private land planting did not vary 200 acres up or gown from the previous year. In 27 States private land planting increased a total of 73,000 acres from last year.
