Abstract

Forestry has little or no past in the South, not much present, but a wonderful future. In today's program of land planning and correct land use there is no greater need than to have every acre of potential timber land fully productive. Idle acres, or at the best acres producing but a fraction of their capacity, are found in every tree region and in most types in these regions in the United States. But no type is probably so completely denuded, with seventy-five to eighty percent of its area barren of tree growth, as is the longleaf-slash pine type of the Deep South.
