PULPWOOD PART OF FARM PROGRAM
While everyone knows that the farmers in
Gulf county right now are busy planting and
tending their 1944 crops, some of us may
overlook the fact that pulpwood is an im-
portant farm crop, just as necessary to the
war effort as many field crops.
The department of agriculture recognized
this even before the war. In 1938 it published
a pamphlet on "Forest Farming," which had
this to say of pulpwood cutting on tarm

he includes his timber crop. His farm woods
yield him cash income. Forest farming

No farmer can afford to pay taxes on idle
land. Timber is a farm crop. It can be made

Since 1938 the vital needs of our armed
services and war industries for pulpwood
have overshadowed the farmer's self-interest.
There is now a patriotic as well as a profit
motive for cutting pulpwood. Moreover, most
field products are dependent on containers
made of pulpwood for marketing or shipment
No farmer of Gulf county should lose sight
of the importance of pulpwood while carry-
ing out his 1944 farm program.
