Description:
Transcribed from back: Farm Forestry Series, 1929, By R. W. Graeber, Extension Forester; Shortleaf pine 25 years old--3080 trees per acre. When we consider 200 trees per acre a stand of sawtimber, we can visualize several periodical harvests during the growing period. This area is being thinned now taking about 60 percent of the trees, leaving approximately 1200 of the best, straightest and strongest trees. The thinnings are going into marketable fuelwood. At farm of J. H. Beck, Davidson County.
