    The woodlands offer splendid opportunities for camping, hunting, fishing and outdoor life. The acorns and other nuts that the squirrels live upon are examples of the food that the forest provides for its residents. As a matter of fact, most of us enter forestry because, more than any other profession you might name, it offers a life of outdoor activity. As Schenck worked throughout Vanderbilt's vast forest lands in Western North Carolina, he found himself explaining to local young men what he was working on and why it was important to maintain healthy forests.

    A big forest fire in Michigan laid waste a tract forty miles wide and one hundred and eighty miles long. Such trade must be built up on the basis of a permanent supply of timber. We sell to foreign countries at least one-half of our cut of black walnut which will be exhausted in ten to twelve years unless present methods are reformed. The life of the average railroad tie is at least doubled by such treatment.

    These camps are very popular. The stream or river which is flooded by these rushing waters roars down its narrow channel, tearing loose and undermining the jutting banks. The growth of the Division of Forestry, now the United States Forest Service, has been very remarkable sincewhen it consisted of only a few scientific workers and clerks. Lumbermen who own forests from which they desire to harvest a timber crop should first of all survey the woods, or have some experienced forester do this work, to decide on what trees should be cut and the best methods of logging to follow.

I don't have much to say about Rutherfurd's writing, I am not able to. The stream or river which is flooded by these rushing waters roars down its narrow channel, tearing loose and undermining the jutting banks. In different sections of the elk country, a count is made every few years on the breeding animals in each band.

The furniture industry uses hardwoods of superior grade and quality. Conditions imposed in France and Germany, where the population is so dense that more conservative systems of lumbering are generally practiced, were not always applicable in this country.

Engineers report that the carrying power of a stream is increased 64 times when its rate of flow is doubled. Trees that have been exposed to fire are often weakened and blown down easily.

The amount of rainfall that directly strikes the ground is relatively small. Careful observation and measurements have shown that unforested regions will discharge rain water at least twice as fast as will forested districts.

Some specimens found in the mountains of the South have been over feet high and 8 to 10 feet in diameter, while poplars to feet high are quite common. It should be practiced in every state. Build it in the open, not against a tree or log, or near brush. These trees live in the colder climates of the northern states.

If we can regulate cutting and replenish our forests as they deserve, there is a remarkable opportunity for us to build up a large and permanent export trade. A large number of cities and towns have purchased and are maintaining municipal or communal forests for this very reason. At present it employs more than 2, workers, which number is increased during the dangerous fire season to from 4, to 5, employees.

Forty years later, the Wisconsin State Legislature began to investigate the destruction of the forests of that state in order to protect them and prolong their life. During the dry summer season when a strong wind is blowing, the fire will run for many miles.

The saw-fly worm has killed off most of the mature larches in these eastern forests. About one-sixth of all the lumber that is cut in the United States is used in making crates and packing boxes. For example, shoe lasts, hat blocks, bowling pins, base-ball bats, wagon bolsters and wheel hubs are now made of short pieces of material which are fastened together with waterproof glue.

In the South people sometimes set fires in order to improve the grazing. Bark diseases prevent the movement of the food supplies. On such runs one man steers the boat and watches the forested shoreline for three or four hours at a time, while his mate reads or sleeps; then they change off.

Its development and expansion have been rapid. We cannot afford to increase our export of southern yellow pine unless reforestation is started on all land suitable for that purpose. Today, Mont Alto offers four baccalaureate degrees and eight associate degrees, and serves nearly 1, students annually.

It was established in order to carry on investigations about forestry and how to preserve our trees. No seed or tree stock can be imported. The wood of the red cedar gives off a peculiar odor which is said to keep moths away from clothes stored in cedar chests, but it is the close construction of the chest which keeps them out.

It is a tall straight tree that grows to a height of to feet. Be sure it is OUT. They convert young trees into hewed crossties which would yield twice as great a return if allowed to grow for four or five years longer and then be cut as lumber.

A few of these ideas were considered too ambitious and were turned down, such as the number of students to be educated each year and how many years the degree took Rothrock initially wanted 40 students per year earning a six year education ; but the majority of these ideas were eventually incorporated into the school by its fourth year of existence.Looking for the plot summary of The School Book of Forestry?
