    Description

    In 1951 foresters at the Penobscot Experimental Forest near Bangor, Maine, began a demonstration of the financial returns that can be realized through careful management of small forest properties. Light improvement cuts made in 1951 and 1952 on a moderately stocked 47-acre tract (Compartment 2) yielded gross incomes of $623.74 and $191.81 respectively. Another well-stocked 55-acre tract (Compartment 7) yielded $558.82 for a single harvest in 1952. This report describes the benefits from subsequent harvests of the same woodlands.
