A demonstration of efficient woodlot management shows how a farmer can make the maximum yearly income from this source. The story of Joe Kelly, who sold his trees to be cut down wholesale, illustrates the danger of a shortsighted policy. Given a second chance on his father's farm, Joe practices selective cutting, that keeps the woodlot in fine condition while bringing in a good, regular income. Information on which trees to cut is given, as well as advice on marketing the wood.
