DescriptionModern gum naval stores methods have been developed to benefit both the gum producer and the timber owner. Following the methods described in this booklet will bring maximum gum yields, whill reduce chipping-labor requirements about 50 percent, and will make the worked-out tree saleable for other wood products. If these modern turpentining mehods are used, naval stores can be integrated in the management plan for pine timbered lands, and timber owners can almost double the dollar value per tree by leasing or working for naval stores before they harvest.
