close to 45,000. He says 63 percent
of Oregon's privately owned for
est reserves are owned by indiv

5,000 acres each.
Farmer owners of woodlands
play Important roles in the tim
ber picture, Ross emphasizes. In
western Oregon, for example,
there is an average of close to 40
acres of wood for each farm.
Many other small acreage timber
owners are local businessmen,

seeded to alfalfa and grass this

percent of all the privately own

Meanwhile, a change is taking
place in the minds of the small
forest property owners, Ross
states. Prior to about 1910, few
farmers, for instance, saw any
thing but a pasture and wood
reservoir in their wootllots. They
felt it did not pay to try to sell
small trees, an dit took two life
times to crow salable timber. A
sweeping change in viewpoint is
now taking place, Ross observes,
and present day woodland own
ers are seeking income from their
trees. Nowadays they are talk
ing knowingly of poles, sawlogs,
pulpwood and fuel markets.
Future markets for woodland
products are bound to inenviv

coming more valuable as the re
sult of inroads on the stands of
old growth forests. The day when
farmers can receive an annual
"cosh crop" from their woods is
not too far distant, Ross said.
