Abstract

Back in the twenties the enlargement of the Federal forestry research program called for the establishment of the Central States Forest Experiment Station. This new station was designed to help the existing State agencies in the solution of important forestry problems. The territory, comprising the States of Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, Missouri, Iowa, and parts of Kentucky, Tennessee and Arkansas, had previouslyhad little assistance from the already established forest experiment stations to the north, east and south. The importance of this central region was becoming more and more apparent with the waning supply o£ hardwood timber.
