Subject(s):forest survey

Abstract:A forest survey of Illinois was begun by the State Natural History Survey in July, 1919 when Mr. R. B. Miller was engaged for a preliminary general study of the Illinois situation and conditions and for educational and publicity work intended to open the way to active, practical studies on a larger scale. In 1921 three additional foresters, with Mr. C. J. Telford in charge, entered upon a systematic survey of Illinois woodlands with a view to their location and area, their composition and condition, their present management and utilization, and their productivity as shown by the rates of growth of important kinds of trees on various soils, in various situations, under various conditions, and in all parts of the state.
