    If white pine forests are to be made an important source of timber in the state either through planting or the proper handling of stands already established, it is essential to have the facts regarding the commercial possibilities of this tree. The facts which must be ascertained first of all are, how long does it take white pine to become merchantable, and what are the possible yields and money returns that may be expected when it has been grown? With this information as a background, one naturally wants to know how much it costs to plant, the kind of land best suited for the growth of the species, and what expenditures may be involved in the way of protection, thinning, and other care of the stand. To answer these questions the Lake States Forest E xperiment Station, in cooperation with the University of Wisconsin during the summer of 1929, undertook, on the basis of existing stands in the state, an innstigation of the growth and yield of pure, even-aged, fully-stocked white pine stands on different soils. This analysis included both natural and planted stands, and may serve as a guide for planting operations both by private interests and the state.
