Description:
Transcribed from back: Farm Forestry Series by R.W. Graeber, Extension Forester. #236. 1929. Mr. B.B. Everett, Palmyra, Halifax County, in speaking to his tenants says, "Boys we've got to learn how to cut our fire-wood without destroying our stand of timber. You will want wood next year and many other years. You will also want work a few extra days each year for wages. If we destroy our timber I won't have anything for you to do between crops." This picture shows Mr. Everett, County Agent J.B. Britt, and a group of Mr. Everett's tenants at a forestry meeting. Mr. Everett had just passed out of couple crates of "pop."
