Methods of Western Larch Regeneration Champion Timberlands Rocky Mountain Operation
( 1979) Beebe, Tim ; Iowa State University Digital Repository

Western larch (Larix occidentalis) plays an important role on Champion's western Montana timberlands, providing large volumes of sawlogs and veneer to the largest plywood plant in the northwest (located in Bonner, Montana). In addition, western larch fits uniquely into Champion's policy of converting oldgrowth, stagnant stands of timber into young and vigorous stands, thus insuring a permanent productive source of goods and benefits.

The Forester
( 1979) Bush, Munroe ; Iowa State University Digital Repository

Co-oping With The Corps
( 1979) Becker, David ; Iowa State University Digital Repository

When I received a phone call last May 5th informing me that I had been selected for a Co-op position with the Rock Island District Corps of Engineers I had mixed emotions. Don't get me wrong though! I hadn't found a summer job yet or satisfied my Ag. 104 requirement, so I was happy. But the thing is ... I had never really thought of myself as working for the Corps of Engineers.
