Abstract

It is well that the Iowa Academy of Science recognize that the trees in our woodlands are a farm crop since 98% of Iowa's timber is farm owned. In addition, we must recognize timber as a natural resource that can be renewed, providing proper management is given to it. Our woodlands are intimately related to the agricultural problems of the State, in that they are the protectors of agricultural soil and the guardians of our water supply. They play an indispensable and permanent role in our economy both rural and urban. The total value of lumber and other forest products harvested in Iowa in 1946 has been estimated to be $17,000,000. This annual return could be multiplied several times through improved management of the existing woodlots and better marketing of the wood products.
