Abstract

When one thinks of forestry, lumbering, and kindred subjects there come to mind pictures of a wild and distant regional pioneer conditions and things done a huge, rough scale. The idea of forests and their utilization seems inseparable from that of vast tracts of timber, remote from settlements and cultivation. Particularly does this seem true to dwellers of the prairie who are not usually familiar with timbered regions. In fact it is true to a large degree, for many extensive forest areas are wilderness, rough and mountainous, and most of the lumbering is done under pioneer conditions. In other places lumbering is the forerunner of cultivation as in the central hardwoods and southern pine belt where the topographic and climatic conditions are favorable.
