The Yankee Forest
Abstract:The forests of central and southern New England have been successively shaped by exploitation, abandonment, and natural recovery. Now they are well stocked with mediocre trees, are predominantly in small tracts, and are threatened by heavy cutting for fuelwood and by further subdivision. Under social and economic policies adapted to the region, however, and with foresters contributing new ideas and practices, these stands can become a demonstration of multiple-use management on nonindustrial private holdings.
