Excerpt from Farm Forestry: A d104 Book; Dealing With the Wooded Parts of Southern Farms, and the Problems Growing Out of Them, for Use in Agricultural High, Schools and Colleges
More than half of the area of farm holdings in Georgia is in woods; and more than half of the wooded area of the State is in farm holdings. The future of the for ests. Of the State depends largely on the attitude of the farmers towards the wooded parts of their holdings. With a view to inﬂuencing their attitude, lectures on forestery were begun many years ago at the State College of Agriculture at Athens by Dr. H. C. White. These lectures were incidental to the courses in agricultural chemistry, forestry being taken up in its bearing on soil conservation. When I was elected Professor of Forestry in 1906, Dr. White turned over this work to me. The lectures have been extended into a course of three months for the one-year students and a course of half a year for the Seniors. The following text is an outline of these courses. My chief purpose in writing it is to save a part of the time spent by the students in taking and copying lecture notes. But the problems discussed should also be of interest. To those who are managing farms; and while some of them may not find all of the suggestions practicable, in the conditions existing on their farms. They will find that a part of them are practicable, and as the market and other conditions change with the industrial development of the country, they will find that more of these suggestions can be carried out.
