DescriptionBy the late 1920s, most of the big southern pine lumber operations had cut out their virgin timber, or were on the cusp of doing so. Only a few had started dabbling with sustainable forestry—“perpetual forestry,” as some called it. This USDA Forest Service image, taken in January 1926 by Wilbur R. Mattoon, captures the essence of the limited southern pine silvicultural options available at that time.
