Title:Forest Conditions in Illinois
Author(s):Hall, R.C.; Ingall, O.D.
Subject(s):Illinois forests
agriculture and mining
U.S. Department of Agriculture
Abstract:Illinois as a timber-producing state is so overshadowed by Illinois as an agricultural and mining state that little thought is given to the forests as a source of wealth. Yet the output of her sawmills in native timber amounted in 1909 to one hundred and fifteen million board feet, which represents sawed material alone and excludes such forest products as hewed ties, piling, posts, fuel, and timber for general use on the farm. Evidently the woodlands are of importance as a source of income at least in some parts of the state. Now that the country is beginning to give belated attention to the conservation of all natural resources, the questions naturally arise what is the extent and condition of our forest lands, and how can they be treated so that they will continue to be productive?
