Description:
Transcribed from back: Farm Forestry Series, 1936, by R.H. Page, Jr., Assistant Extension Forester. 804 - A nice stand of black locust on land too steep to cultivate. Madison County. The owner has girdled the trees despite the fact that much of this same area, recently cultivated, is now only a mass of gullies. What a need for education here!
