IT. A plan for "harvesting of
the forests.' as opposed to the 1
present system of denuding the
wood tracts of this and other
states and that, if it proves ad
vantageous, may revolutionize
the lumber industry of the coun

by Henry Ford on a section of
land about two miles from Sid -

The plan, that is attracting con
siderable attention among, lum
bermen, has as its basic principle
the conservation of Michigan's
last dwindling timber .supply.
SetxllinRs Protected
The section chosen for the ex
periment is a part of Mr. Ford's
holdings in the upper peninsula.
The idea, in brief, is i to remove
from this tract only the mature
trees. Underbrush and the waste
wood left in lumbering operations
are to be carefully cleared away
to protect the remaining trees
against fire. The young trees re
maining will be permitted to at
tain maturity. In the; meantnme
they will seed the ground about
them and when they, tn turn are
cut. the nert crop will have been
started. Thus harvests may be
liiade in each of a period of years
indefinitely. One feature of the
plan is to leave sufficient space
between the growing young trees
to permit . their rapid develop
ment. !
Kvonfs I Warranted
Mr. Ford and his associates ad
mit that the cost of rearing trees
in this way will be gteattr than
the present expense of obtaining
lumber, but point out that unless
conservation r?medies are applied
at once the future will see the
forests depleted and that the
country in the future will pay
dearly for its past neglect.
E. G. Kingsford, a member of
a Ford concern, said ; concerning
the venture and its possibilities:
''Mr. Ford is convinced that the
public interests demands a fun
damental change in treatment of
our forest wealth. The inevitable
result of the present pystem will
be denuding of our -forest lands.
As this denuding continues lum
ber costs will advance steadily.
Finally denudation will be car
ried to the point where- the need
of remedial measures : will be re
alized everywhere. At that time
reforestation will be the only hope
for the future and this is a slow
and expensive process.
All Must (o-0cratp
"The harvesting of trees is a
practical alternative; In our
present test we will cut trees with
a minimum diameter of 10 to 12
inches. We not only will remove
all wastage from the trees felled
to guard against fire, fcut will cut
away all of the balsams and oth
er trees that might ; retard the
growth of th? young trees leCt
"We realize that the Ford in
terests can do little without the
co-operation of other lumbering
interests. Much educational work
must be done before the idea will
come into general
use. We are
seeking to blaze a trail in the
effort to convince other lumber
men that the idea at least is
worthy of study and experiment."
