Author: Broadfoot, Walter M.;

Date: 1951

Source: Occasional Paper SO-OP-120. New Orleans, LA: USDA-Forest Service, Southern Forest Experiment Station. 16 p.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication (MISC)

Description: Forest plantations in north central Mississippi and western Tennessee can produce merchantable timber on much land which erosion has made useless for other crops Forest plantings usually can decrease, stop, or forestall erosion economically. This paper describes the most important sites in the area, predicts what may be expected if they are planted to trees, and suggests the tree species and planting procedures most likely to succeed. The opinions and conclusions are based on field observations during the past three years. The majority of these observations were made during detailed study of 159 plantations on which establishment records were available.
