Title:A Manual of Woodlot Management
Author(s):Telford, C.J.
idle land
forest land
Abstract:This manual is addressed to those landowners who have woodlots or idle land. It is assumed that they appreciate the intangible benefits accruing from the woodlot as a refuge for wild life, as a local modifier of dry and cold winds, as a protection to the sources of local water supply, as a means of enhancing the beauty of the landscape, and as a place for recreation; and that they also appreciate the service to the nation rendered by productive forests. Our purpose is to define the true forest lands in Illinois, to outline the methods for the proper management of the woodlot, and to give the general returns to be derived from the managed production of wood. The point of view throughout is the growing of a wood crop as a producer of revenue. The broad essentials of woodlot management are outlined briefly, the methods which are adapted to the growing of timber under different conditions of site and market are discussed at some length, and the methods of measuring and marketing the product are described in detail.
