Fifty Years of Forestry on Private Lands in New England
New England, to most people in the United States, means a section of the country rich in the early history of our country and an area that is heavily populated, with many industrial cities. Little thought is given to its forests. They may be surprised to find that the major portion of New England land area is forest (Table 1). Seventy-seven per cent is forest land compared to 33 per cent in the United States as a whole.
